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 Its handles came from an old dresser, and the tray is lined with durable wallpaper from an outdated sample book that was free-for-the-asking from an interior design center.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.
