Enamel Tray Memo Board

A vintage enamel tray gets a fun and useful transformation...




A couple of coats of chalkboard paint and the addition of 

a scrabble shelf to hold chalk...


makes this old tray not only a chalkboard but magnetic to boot!
The magnets are scrabble pieces with round 
magnets glued to the back.

A Disc is glued to the back for hanging...
A great invention that will hang almost anything to your wall!



The chipped and worn edges of this tray are authentic and intact

giving this memo board a spectacular vintage appeal...


Coupons, photos, and tickets are kept in view while
the chalkboard is the perfect place to write a quick reminder...



With or without the chalkboard paint the 
magnetic memo board is a winner!

  1. I just found a round enamel tray at our local thrift store. I think it is so cool! Not sure I am "brave" enough to paint it yet. Great idea though!

  2. What a great idea, I just put a few of these in my shop space and kept a couple...I know what I can do with them now if I dont use them for anything else.

  7. Wonderful idea, as I like that it is magnetic and chalk board, double duty, but how do you have it attatched to the wall? Thanks for sharing.
