Repurposing Idea ~ Serving Tray Memo Board

I was paging through some old copies of  Country Living magazine and came across this cute idea from the September 2006 issue. It’s such a fun, useful idea that I had to pass it your way.

Repurpose decorative metal serving trays as magnetic memo boards. Use them to hold to-do lists, invitations, or newspaper clippings of upcoming events you’d like to attend. I took the idea one step further by propping the tray up on a recipe book holder and sticking my recipe for cinnamon apples on it. This makes it so much easier to see the recipe. The original idea in Country Living shows the metal tray propped up against a wall .

Have a beautiful weekend friends!

    I LOVE this! The craziest part is years ago I actually had this IDENTICAL tray! This is such a neat idea, and it looks beautiful. Thanks for sharing. I will definitely be on the lookout for a pretty tray that matches my kitchen. I think it’s really neat on the holder like that. I’m also thinking it will be fun to change the trays for various holiday trays each season.
