OK, so this wasn't a trash find, but it was dirt cheap. I stopped in a thrift store at lunch the other day and found this. It was nice that it fit in my car too, ha.
It's a large wooden tray. I'm not sure of its original purpose, if it was part of something else or what, but when I saw it, I knew it could be useful at the farm.
There are some scratches and scuffs and water stains so it is not mint condition. Heck, I'm not even sure if it's old. But it is made from a good solid, sturdy wood and has handles on each side to make it easier to carry.

Did I saw it was large? These porch steps are 4' wide so the tray is probably a good three feet.
I'm thinking a paint job will be in order. Maybe cork in the bottom? A mirror? Glass with something decorative underneath? Not sure how we'll end up using it but for $6 (yep, you read that right, only paid six dollars for it!) it's worth trying to do something to it.
