If you cook at home frequently, chances are you have quite a few cookie sheets. In fact, you probably have at least one that’s rusted, bent up or just scratched up to the point where you don’t even want to use it for baking anymore, even if you hate the idea of throwing it away.

Don’t worry, there are plenty of other uses for cookie sheets besides baking. Huliq even has a list of 20 different ideas of what you can do with them, from storing things on your dresser to converting it into a magnetic board game kids can use on long road trips.

Personally, I’m pretty big on the idea of using chalkboard paint to turn an old cookie sheet into a cool-looking chalkboard you can use to pass messages on to the rest of your family members.

1. A cookie sheet can be used to hold items from your dresser. You can decorate it with acrylic paints to match the décor in your bedroom. Use it to organize jewelry, perfume and other accessories you keep on the dresser.

2. A decorated cookie sheet also makes an excellent serving try. Use it for breakfast in bed or to serve snacks in living room while you watch television. Another option if you don’t have time to paint it is to add a glued layer of decorated fabric or a pretty kitchen towel to hide the rusty bottom.

3. A cookie sheet can be painted black and used as a chalkboard to share messages with your family or write to-do lists. Kids will love it to play school.
