If you love to repurpose "junk" items, it's hard not to be inspired by the projects in Flea Market Style Magazine.
There were so many awesome projects in the magazine and one that really caught my eye was the tennis racquet presses repurposed into snack trays.
How cool are these?
(Flea Market Style)
I had a racquet press in my studio and I started playing around with it.
I didn't have any wood slats available for the base of the tray so I looked around the house and found a simple white plate that was a good fit.
It's a simple interpretation of the Flea Market Style snack tray (and forgive my lack of "plate styling".....the only snack I had in my pantry was crackers).
Then I thought.....what if I used the press as a plate hanger?
I turned the plate around, screwed a cup hook on top for a cup and hung the press on the wall.
I love it!
And I think the screws on the bottom of the press would be perfect to hang an apron or some pot holders.
So what started as an attempt to make a snack tray ended up as a fun plate hanger for my kitchen. Thanks Flea Market Style!
