We inherited this small tv from relatives. I decided my motivation to iron would be watching Martha Stewart on Tuesdays!Above is a detail of how I hung these tole trays. Some have proper hangers, but for those which don't, I use nails. I loop ribbon through pierced trays. For large trays, I hammer two large nails into the wall and rest the tray on them. What's nice about that method is that if you need to use a tray, you only have to lift it from the wall! I'll eventually paint or pretty the nailheads with cabinet knobs. For now, I'm thrilled to have the job one step closer to completion!

Hanging tole trays
I am so grateful to have my first real laundry room! It's too narrow for useful storage, so I decided to hang the tole trays for a quickie re-do. (Only it's not so quick if it's four months post-move, is it?) Better to use the things I already have--or, as my husband might mutter, better to get those things off the dining room floor already! Here is the other side of the room. We moved these cabinets from the opposite wall, but I still need to glaze them white. You'll notice I keep my file cabinets in here, one on either side of the machines. My mom rescued them from a dumpster, and I spray painted them black years ago. Perhaps we can touch them up with decoration that echoes the tole trays.
