I'm a hugely visual person and for me there is no better way to get inspired and stay inspired than being surrounded by pretty things you love! This metal inspiration board is the perfect way to display your photos, recipes, magazine clippings and other cute details! And the best part? It's unbelievably simple to make!

Materials

: Thrifted Metal Tray (I got mine for 50 cents!), Spray Paint, and materials needed to safely spray paint (depends on where you do it, I did mine outside)

Step One

: Wash your tray with soap to get any dust off. This helps the spray paint stick!

Step Two

: Take your tray outside or somewhere well ventilated and spray it. For me mine only needed two coats, but depending on your tray and your spray paint you may need more than two. Let dry!
