repurposed vintage letterpress tray

In a recent post last seen here I included a picture of a letterpress tray that I was hunting for to showcase some of my jewelry.  Most of my jewelry was being stored in a jewelry armoir but I find that I forget about so many things because they are in drawers and not on display.  I had the idea of  using a letterpress tray on one of my shelves in my closet to better mix and match some of my favourite pieces.  I found this tray yesterday at L&K Antiques (Tilbury, ON. $30).  It is larger than the one I found at the time of my recent post and was $10 cheaper.  I scrubbed it down earlier today and let it dry in the sun.  Pictured below is how the tray looks now that it is filled with some of my favourite baubles.
