WHAT TO DO? WHAT TO DO? And an incentive too!


INSPIRATION NEEDED
I bought these cute metal trays recently and have hit a brick wall on what to do with them.

They measure 16"x10" on the outside and 12"x6.5" on the inside.
I am in need of some ideas.

WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH THEM?

As added incentive I will send you some personalized vinyl
 if I pick your idea.  The personalized vinyl could be in the form of a family name, an address, a cute saying of your choice...the possibilities are endless.

I am counting on you to come up with some really great ideas.  I will be deciding which idea I will use by Saturday.

Oh those are cute!! My first thought was to do a "Keep Calm" saying on them.

I'll have to sit this one out and just wait to see what you come up with...or someone else for that matter!

They're really cute!!

If they are magnetic...I'd turn a couple of them into inspiration boards. I love mine and use it every day. Not magnetic? Buy some magnetic paint :)

I personally think you should send one to me!! They are so neat!!
I would put your favorite quote on at least one of them!!

I had a couple of ideas... Hang them down a hall or on a wall with framed photographs in the middle to kind of showcase the photos a little more... painted all the same color. Or use one for in a kitchen, hang it with a ribbon a put the new recipes you want to try on them, so you don't forget about them, maybe with some vinyl, or maybe just the recipes for the week?
Or use the holes in it to string ribbon thru in a cris cross pattern and use them as a place to clip little girls hair bows...

I think chalkboard on one, collage of family or hobby on another, magnetic on one and definitely vinyl on one. How's that for a few ideas :)

I would use all 4 of them in a wall collage with some additional framed photos. I would paint them all one color first. Then use a pretty ribbon to hang them. I'm thinking I would use an inspirational word on each one.

WOW tose were great ideas. I can't wait to see watyo decide to do. I might use them as gifts and put a photo in them. Turn them sideways and get a little stand to put them on. You could do back and white photos or paint them to make the photo pop.

You could also paint them anddecopage a cute picture ie chef, rooster etc Wow I had 2cents worth of somethig to say :)

Those would be great for some family rules vinyl to hang in the kitchen! Or, it'd be really neat to make a clock out of one! And, sit one on the coffee table with some books, and an apothecary jar or cloche!!
