I make cork boards using old frames and trays I find at thrift stores.  Every once in a while I ran into a bread cutting tray.  These trays have a detachable grid on top.  That's where you cut your bread.  The crumbs fall underneath, into the tray, and allow for easy cleanup.  I use the tray part for the cork board, and I am accumulating the grids.  What can I do with them?

Here's a photo!



And another, so that you can see underneath:



Thank you so much!

My first thought is that using a dremmel or a drill to drill holes into the slats, and two little brackets on the back, that these would be great for earring holders!  And you could finish them however you wanted!

How about you cut them vertically in half , paint them white and use them to make tiny picket fences for flower pots? ( this idea might have something to do with my activities of the last night and day- redoing my flower pots for the windowsills) Wink

I like your idea.  I had thought about hanging necklaces, but you're right, if I drill some holes, these could be awesome jewelry organizers.  Thank you!!!!
