Alternate Use

I had bought an unfinished wooden tray from the craft store in order to give my make-up area a little more order. Then I realized I had way too many bottles of lotions and potions to really fit in this little tray. In order to find an alternate use I painted it a bright Tiffany green and now I use it as a catcher for small stuff on my desk. it’s worked really well so far. It’s solved the mystery of looking for my glasses after I take my contacts out and there is a place to put my every-day earrings before I retire to bed. I almost like this use better than the original plan.

At least it isn’t gathering dust.
