Vintage Memo Board

I had purchased a couple vintage metal trays a month ago because I had an idea about a memo board for recipes, pictures, phone numbers, etc.

I chose the pink tray (love the salmon-y, thistle-y color!) and glued a dark ribbon to the back. Simply hung from the wall and added a large vintage button over the nail head. (It looks like a huge licorice gumdrop). An store (daysmadesweet) sells very powerful glass magnets in cute patterns. Mine are black with white polka dots.

Looking at this photos, I realized it is hanging a bit crooked. Off to fix it now. Maybe this will inspire someone out there.

Happy Spring!


  1. My mind does not think in the same way as yours. If I had a tray, I would think, "great...a tray" and that's about all I would come up with. Very vintage and cute.

  2. It looks so cute! I'm glad you like the magnets!
