tray tables

I think a small part of me is slowly reverting to my tween-age self. I just painted my bedroom a super pale pink (which my mom reminded me was my favorite when I was little), and I’m now hunting down Bombay Company-style tray tables for the entryway because they remind me of the kind I grew up with in Virginia. Sadly, it looks like the old-school ones I love aren’t as easy to find these days (they’re number one in my “find at Brimfield” list now), but while I was hunting, I came across some pretty cute tables that I thought would work as bedside tables, entryway catchalls and occasional tables. So if you’re in the market for something small (but functional), these might be for you. I think the red one below would be adorable as a mini home bar. xo, grace

Great post.

I saw a table top tray nearly identical to the red one at target! It doesn’t have the legs but it is the same style and the same color. I was thinking of buying it a few days ago and spraying it another color. That’s why I noticed it.

The Slow Pace

The last one is perfect for our home. We bought one,a month ago but we didn’t find as many as you have shown here.


I empathize. I did a complete reversion to my tween/teen age self for my current home office. I loved filling the space with all the colors and objects I always wanted from a Tord Boontje lamp to posters to flamingos and orange tables. The best part is my rainbow ribbon window coverings/inspiration boards! Alas, it is time to grow up, so I am seeking slightly more mature furnishings . I sure had fun though!


Great tray tables/bar tables at Society Social! Thats where I got mine.
