Carry breakfast in style to someone in need of a little indulgence. This pretty, practical tray is fashioned from the top of a discarded suitcase. Its handles came from an old dresser, and the tray is lined with durable wallpaper from an outdated sample book that was free-for-the-asking from an interior design center. Putting the whole thing together took all of ten minutes, leaving plenty of time for a leisurely breakfast in bed.

1. Drill holes for the two handles on each end of the suitcase top. You’ll need short screws because the suitcase’s side walls aren’t very thick. Attach with a screwdriver.

2. Cut out wallpaper scraps from the sample book to cover the bottom of the tray. Cover the back of the wallpaper with white glue and smooth firmly into place on the tray floor.
