As fate would have it, I was cruising one of my local haunts and spotted a new-in-box TBT setting upon the shelf. At only $1, I had zero chance of resisting. As I pick it up I had a thought...why not change it up a bit? Records! Since I have boxes of albums (33's and 78's) this would be easy. I knew that I wanted to have graduated sizes for each level so I went on the hunt for a 45 to be the smallest top tier. I'm sure it's been done before but it was quick, easy and oh so cute!
My original plan was to use a 33 for the bottom level, a 78 for the middle and a 45 for the top. Unfortunately this tidbit did not come with a base and I felt that just having an album in the bottom with no foot to sit upon would just be too unfinished for my taste. Maybe, just maybe, I would be able to use another 78 for the base and set it inside the lip of the actual tray.
Now with all of the kinks worked out, it's just a matter of assembling it all.. The bottom screw connected to the lower rod, the lower rod connected to the center rod...Sing it with me...center rod connected to the top loop....
I think the finished tray is super adorable. It will be a great addition to my ever growing collection!
