A Design*Sponge post describes turning old stove-burner tops into colorful trivets:
I was immediately struck by their variations in pattern and how interesting they looked out of context. I never knew burner tops came in so many different shapes! After some heavy scrubbing, I found I liked them even more. They are nice, mid-sized objects with a bit of weight to them, which makes them great for home decor.
For my kitchen, modern white was the way to go, but you could easily leave them au naturel or vary this design in a million ways. As long as you seal them with a good protectant and add some simple felt feet, they are perfect for handling hot pans or plates from the oven, and between uses they look great on the wall — as any good trivet should.
There’s a how-to as well, “with no tools or tricky steps.” The rest is at: Design*Sponge » Blog Archive » diy project: salvaged stove top trivets
