Have you baked all the brownies you can bake in some old, tired pan? Instead of tossing it, give it a second chance at life by transforming it into wall art.

Baking pan as wall art? Yep, you heard right. From a pan we picked up at an estate sale, learn how to take an old pan and quickly transform it into an unconventional piece of art.


This project is easier than whipping up a pan of brownies, which sound really good right about now!

repurpose baking pan into a wall frame

This old and scratched brownie pan was part of my husband’s aunt’s estate sale. She was a wonderfully gourmet chef. So it seems only fitting that a pan she most likely baked fancy desserts in for one of her many dinner parties be given new life in our home as part of a gallery wall.

– Old baking pan
– Spray paint (I used this great metallic gold)
Foam board or heavy cardboard
– Artwork or photo (I printed ours on high quality photo paper)
3M Super 77 Adhesive Spray (this has become a fave tool!)
Gorilla Glue
– Wall hook + nail

Step #1:
Give your old baking pan a coat of spray paint. Or, leave the pan as is. Whatever look you’re going for. Let dry.

Step #2:

Since the inside of the pan will hold the piece of art, trace the inside shape onto a piece of foam board or heavy cardboard.

Step #3:

Print out your artwork or photo on high quality photo paper (or get professionally printed at your local photo center). Adhere the print to the foam core with spray adhesive.

Step #4:
My foam core artwork fit snugly within the pan without any needed adhesive. If yours does not, give the bottom of the baking pan a spray of adhesive to secure the foam core so it will not fall out when hung.

Add a small amount of Gorilla Glue to the bottom of the baking pan. Add a wall hook and let dry.
