My Huge Black Farmhouse Tray

I'm taking a break today from my series on replacing our hardwood floors to let you know my big black farmhouse tray is currently on sale again online. I'm not sponsored by the seller, but I've been asked several times where I purchased my tray, so I thought I'd give you a heads-up that it's available again. A link is provided at the end of this post. 

I purchased this tray last summer and had to wait quite awhile for it when the online store ran out and ordered more. They sent me a very nice email apologizing and asking me if I still wanted one when they received more. It was well worth the wait. I love decorating this huge chippy black metal tray for the different seasons.

 Here's the tray in our entryway last summer.

Here it is last Christmas.

And here it is last Fall.

I'd also like to try it out on our round dining room table for spring with some greenery and white ironstone - maybe when the floors are done and we're unpacked again. There's something about this tray that really inspires me to fill it up with seasonal vignettes, and it fits my home's farmhouse style perfectly.  

Here is the tray as seen on the Antique Farm House website with a link to it below the photo.

If I remember correctly, their sales rotate, so it may only be available for a limited time. 

Happy shopping!

(Note: I recently found another source for this tray here.)
