Tray Backdrop

I just love this little corner on my kitchen counter between my stove and sink. I am always changing it out 'cause it's so easy and doesn't take much thought or accessories. I thought it needed kind of a backdrop so I got one of my yard sale trays (I have lots), spray painted it black, and just taped on a piece of polka dot scrapbook paper. I think I am liking it. Y'all know me - definitely not a minimalist! I like pattern and lots of stuff. Hope you have a great Monday!

I love your sweet little decorative corner! I have little counter space in my kitchen. What I do have seems to have small appliances like blenders and such. I've gotta rethink that and make it pretty.

I love that little corner of your kitchen too. I love to look through your pictures and see all the different things you to with it. I have a space like that in my kitchen but I haven't been able to come up with anything for it.

This is probably a silly question but how do you get the correct size of paper for the inside of the tray? I tried tracing a template for a tray I had and no matter what I couldn't get the sizing right. Is there a trick to it?
