Reused & Repurposed Vintage metal dinner trays

I bought these old metal red checkered dinner trays last year & set them up in Mason & Maddox's room as memo boards (I bought 3) I finally finished 'finding' the right things to add to them. The boys' room is a vintage car/driving theme. I'm orginally from southern California & my husband is a Texas boy, so we merged the 2- a little route 66, but mostly just overall vintage cars & driving. We have quite a few old license plates & road signs up, but I'm also adding in some personalized things of the boys & pictures as well.
The items I added to the repurposed dinner trays (can you believe I didn't even want to paint them!? they are perfectly worn & the color is a great pop in their room.) are:
-old California postcards (specifically from along Highway 1)
-hot wheel cars that I turned into magnets
-dublin dr pepper bottle tops turned into magnets
-vintage license plates (I belive might be old motorcycle plates)
-pictures of the boys
-printed map scrapbook paper- but only because I haven't found the right old map I want to use just yet...
I think they add a lot to the different spots in their room!









I still have a few frames to fill & I have a great photo just for Mason I took last week when we were down south- I think I need to add it in somewhere!
