DIY Magnetic Tray - Take 2
Here's another take on the DIY Magnetic Tray. See my first version decorated with vintage floral fabric right here. Once again I started with a metal serving tray that I found at the thrift store for a buck or two. This time I spray painted the tray blue & then with a brush painted a design on the bottom, which I totally copied from Rachel's awesome toy box.
I am totally embarrassed of my freehand painting job. I am not a painter & so it looks a bit like a child did it. However, I'm pleased with the overall look.
This tray is intended for use in the office or studio & so I attached a magnetic bulldog clip. Can I tell you how much I love bulldog clips? Tons. I think they're cool looking. :) Anyway, this tray with it's magnetic clip can hold a calendar, a to-do list, notes, pattern pieces, swatches, etc. I think it's a pretty addition to the office or studio & it's an easy way to add a pop of color.
