We're spending the next couple of weeks cleaning house around here. Going through drawers, cupboards, the garage, etc., and getting rid of things. While I'm on this organizing kick I made this new tray which is half magnetic and half chalkboard to keep our calendar and lists together.
I took an inexpensive tray and spray painted it with some aqua spray paint. Then I used Crate Paper's Close Knit collection to make magnets to hold things in place.
I just added magnet stips to the backs of the pieces of ephemera and then used them to tack up my lists and photos.
On the other side of the tray I added a chalkboard calendar.
I like that I can change the look of the tray just by switching out the magnet pieces. All in all a very fun project.
