Feeling proud: Recycling Microwave Trays
Before you recycle your old microwave, save the glass tray.
Lots of uses for the glass trays, but my favorites are party platters and discreet drip trays for large indoor planters. They are nice and heavy and have little nub feet. Nothing else needs to be done (unless you want to paint or decoupage the underside of the glass, of course)
No old microwave? Look for the trays at garage sales or Good Will.
