Memo Boards

mjowestAugust 8, 2008

I took the enamelware trays that come out of old stoves, tin tops and metal plates- drilled two holes in them, and hang them with jute (doubled or tripled).

Do they look too plain?

What a great idea!
I don't think they are too plain, what with the magnets and messages on them, they are great!
This is a keeper!

No, I don't think so. I especially like the "speckled" one!

What a great idea for a bulletin board type thingy. Magnets, pictures, etc. would look great on them, or they look cool just plain.

Great repurposing! I love embellishing everything... a way you can do it w/taking away from the whimsy of your creation is to add magnets decorated w/jewelry, rhinestones, flowers etc.. whatever you love... You could even change them out season to season.

OooOOOhh what a great idea:) Love the speckled one,too.

Man, I knew when I picked up that green metal tray at GW I should have bought it. Maybe it's still there! Love the ear clips glued onto magnets!

Very clever idea! I need memos all over my house to keep my ADD brain functioning but can't stand dull, post'em notes. Those really make me feel dumb!
I took an old cookie sheet, painted it bright red and hung on my sons door for his "Remind me to do my chores" board.
Your use of the enamelware stove trays are very classy and would go with any decor.

I love them! What a neat idea vintage look too. I just figured out what to do with all those vintage trays I bought at a garage sale for five cents each more than a decade ago.
Love the earring magnet idea too!
