Enamelware Tray Memo Board

A vintage enamelware tray gets a fun and 
useful transformation today!

A couple of coats of chalkboard paint and the addition of 
a scrabble shelf to hold the chalk.

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!

I hope you enjoyed this project and you'll take a look at my Amazon Shop for craft supplies I recommend. Also while you're here please sign up for the Homeroad emails on my sidebar so I can send my latest DIY post straight to you.

  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.

  3. I love enamelware! You have made this piece so cute and functional! I don't have an enamelware tray, but I'm gonna be on the lookout for one now! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Yup, you made something else I love. Pinning it on my chalkboard board.


  5. I think its Fantasmagories - this is Afrikaans slang for better than Fabulous!!!

    I am on the look out for an enamel tray now!


  6. 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.

  7. love it susan, it's perfectly chippy! and those scrabble tile holders are my favorite chalk holders.
