Metallic Monday

I love this idea for a whimsical note-board!
How cute to finally make use of a family piece or turn an op-shop find into something decorative and practical!
No need to alter the tray, simply string wire tightly behind both handles. Plain silver magnets and magnetic bull-clips let the tray and miscellaneous notes take pride of place.
I think this would look great in a country kitchen or could add a touch of character to a contemporary stainless steel dominated kitchen. Also a great idea for an office area or bedroom. What do you think?

A clever idea! I agree - would look great in an office especially.

Gorgeous idea and not too big so it would fit almost anywhere, if you are pushed for space. I love the idea of mixing it up with contemporary fittings too! A-M xx

What a great idea. I always come across these silver trays but never buy them because I never know what to use them for---but now I know! Thanks for sharing your idea!
Love your blog too!
