Have some old cookie sheets that have seen better days? Repurpose those old, rusty pieces of metal into something practical or beautiful for your home — perhaps a kitchen command center or an activity tray for the kids! Of course, you should make a batch of homemade cookies on your new cookie sheet while you’re at it.
