Garden Memo Board
Hi there! Cheap bulletin boards are pretty easy to come by these days and can be transformed so easily into something much more easy on the eye and useful. I picked up this bulletin board for 90 cents at one of our local thrift stores and really liked the smaller size. Here's the before shot:
I painted the trim and glued-down some pretty drawer-liner paper:
Then I cut some garden fencing down to size but kept the end pieces long. (Found a big roll of this fencing at an estate sale for $1.00!!! luv it!)
I then drilled holes along the bottom and sides where the fencing pieces are long, then bent the fence wire into the hole and curled up the back to hold it in place.
Added a few cup hooks along the bottom, some clothespins to hold memos, photos, seeds and of course, some thumbtacks.
Becky at Beyond the Picket Fence. She recently posted about several bulletin board projects and the one using the garden fencing really spoke to me.
Give her a visit; she is extremely creative and always has loads of great projects to show. She also holds frequent "linky" parties where other bloggers can post links to their projects, which is fun to check out.
