DIY Vintage Serving Tray Memo Board - No Tools Needed!
We’ve been slowly helping to clean out a family member’s attic and came across this old heavy “silver” (not actually silver) serving tray. Since not many people still use serving trays I thought it might be fun to repurpose it into something else - and since it seems to be made of some kind of steel (therefore magnetic), I thought it would make a fun magnetic memo board! | This post contains affiliate links |
- Vintage metal tray (check to make sure it's magnetic)
- plate stand big enough to support the tray (similar size stand linked)
Really the how-to for this project could not be easier! Rest that serving tray on a plate stand that’s big enough/sturdy enough to support it, add some magnets, and BAM, you’re done! I think this project would look so cute on a dresser in a bedroom, a feminine office space, or on a desk nook in the kitchen. It can be used to hold reminders, photos, thank you notes, recipes, mementos, and more.
And if the horizontal orientation isn’t working for your space, just turn the tray and you instantly have a vertical memo board!
If you wanted to hang the tray on a wall instead, you could try using a tray hanger. Just make sure to buy the correct size hanger for your tray and make sure it's rated to support the weight of it.
