Old baking pans or cookie sheets can be decoratively painted to match your decor and used for all kinds of things. Here a cake pan was transformed into a hot beverage service tray for home or office.
Cookie sheets (not shown) make a nice crafting surface for adults or kids. This would make a cheap craft idea for Bible School or Camp or just a rainy day at home for upper grade schoolers. Adults should prepare pans ahead of time.
Approximate Time: 30 minutes
Do not place in dishwasher!
Jewelry/Change Tray for the bedroom. Paint in desired color, glue on beads or rhinestones. Design: pearl necklace and pair of reading glasses.
Travel tray for kids: Use a cookie sheet. Paint a road design and add little metal cars. Or paint a jungle or farm and add animals.
Plant Tray: To keep your potted plants from dripping on things. Paint pan yellow, add ivy design to outside of pan.
Picnic tray: Paint red. Add thin white with sponge. Draw ketchup and mustard bottles, salt and pepper shakers on it and paint. Make a whole set, so everyone has a place for the cup and plate while they're eating!
Crafting Tray: Using a cookie sheet, paint desired color, draw paintbrushes and paint palette, etc. Fill in design as desired.

This is so cute for a little girl or just for home interior. Thanks!
Cute and quite clever :-) Thanks for sharing :-)
I painted the bottom side of a cookie sheet White and use it as a magnetic bulletin board. Just add some small magnets or cut some of the strip magnet into small squares.
