For The Love Of… Trays

Happy Monday all!  I hope your weekend was fabulous!  I had a great one.  It contained all the things I love; gardening, shopping, sunshine, friend get-togethers , BBQs, projects and new challenges.

Its been a while since I’ve  shared a For the Love of post.  As I was cleaning house yesterday I was reminded  how many trays I have all over my house, both store bought and thrift bought.  Trays are so versatile ,  come in so many different colors and shapes and can be used anywhere to corral miscellaneous items or just as a decoration.

Here’s just a few that have met my hand when a can of spray paint was attached to them.

For the love of trays

The last tray does  not have an associated post.  I just picked up an old tray at the Goodwill and spray pained the outside black and the inside copper colors by Rustoleum  It’s the perfect size to hold a few magazines and the remote controls Yyes, I said that as plural…grrr.  I think sometimes electronics are mans best friend.

Do you use trays around your house?


For The Love Of…Spray Paint

It’s another For The Love of and what better to share than spray paint.  I took inventory the other day and I stopped counting at 55 cans.  Have I become a closet spray paint hoarder or is this normal?  I’ve only done small projects, but as I look back on my posts I certainly have used a can or two.  So today I’m sharing with you For The Love Of…Spray Paint!

Blog Updates and a Question

It’s Thursday.  Yay!  The U.S. Open golf tournament starts today.  It’s one of my favorites.  In case you haven’t noticed yet, I thought I would bring to your attention  some new pages I have added to my blog.   See them listed above my header.  One that I’ve put some extra time into is the Project Gallery.  I’ve separated it into categories.  Clicking on a title will immediately take you to the how post for that project.  Below is some of  what is there.


Lots more in the crafts section.  HA!!!  Looks like I need to get back in there and correct the spelling of DIY.  Funny me!



I hope you will find this helpful.  Pictures of most of my projects can also be found on my Pinterest board, appropriately titled Lattenenes Cup of Chat.  To view and follow all my Pinterest boards click here.

Speaking of Lattenenes Cup of Chat, this is where I need your help and would really love your input and comments.  I am wanting to change/shorten the title of my blog.  Any suggestions from the peanut gallery?  LOL, that’s you.  I was thinking maybe something simple like Latte Chat.  Then I could just call it the LC.  What do you think about that?  All comments welcome!
