Decorative French Country Ottoman Tray
Kelly Clarkson Home
This ottoman tray features a square silhouette with cutout handles that make it easy to move from room to room. It is 20.1'' square with a lip that sits almost two inches from the bottom of the tray. The two handles are cut into opposite sides of the two tray lips.
Made from mirrored glass, this square tray is perfect for holding your decorative accessories. The glass has a silver patterned finish with a weathered, chinoiserie-inspired pattern embossed onto the bottom of the tray. This gives it the look of something you picked up the last time you were in France at a local flea market. Keep the tray relatively uncluttered to let the pretty pattern show through your decor items.
