This is a school lunch tray that I picked up at the local thrift store for a whopping $0.50. Yes...it was clean and paint free when I bought it...lol!!! Being that I like things to be simple, this tray with all of it's sections is so handy when it comes to painting. And clean up...forget it. Just let the paint dry right in there, and paint on it again the next time. After awhile it builds up and peels out clean as a whistle in one piece.
