great way to minimize coffee table clutter is with a tray for
remote controls. I recently gave ours a facelift using some
leftover paint from my dresser redo and some pretty
green patterned paper I had in the craft room. I gave the tray a
fresh coat of white paint, painted the inside silver, decoupaged
the paper in the center, and coated the whole thing with
polyurethane. It makes a pretty place to keep remotes, coasters and
table topics questions close at hand.
