Vintage Interior Design Blog | Vintage Swim: Letterpress Trays

Vintage Swim: Letterpress Trays 3 Ways

styling: sana keefer photo: evan wathington

Yes, I know they're nothing new (no pun intended), but they are kind of my favorite right now. I've been finding new uses for vintage type trays and letterpress boards and want to share three ways to use  them around the home.

  1. Wall Decor: Hang vertically or horizontally on walls. Position them above a desk in a workspace or behind a sofa. The aged wood is a beautiful work of art all on its own.
  2. Jewelry Organizing: Lay flat atop a dresser or console and fill with your favorite pieces. I am notorious for losing one of a pair when it comes to earrings so besides the aesthetic angle, storing your pairs together in different parts of the tray really does work for me.
  3. Desk Storage: Because my work studio is in my home,  I'm constantly worried about tidying up. Though most of my assets are digital, I still have odds and ends like rubber bands for shipping, paper clips for printed correspondence and tacks for my old school inspiration board. These trays help me keep them all on hand.
What are your thoughts on letterpress boards and trays? Have you ever used them? And if so, how? Let's hear it!
