I had a chance to make a beautiful message board out of wood and a picture frame. I had this large old gold frame and it had some nice crackling look to it. I had sample paint in True Turquoise by Glidden and I painted the frame. I did no prep work.
Next, I had a piece of wood and it had an old fabric on there I didn't take it off and I just took batting and white burlap and laid the wood piece on top. I stapled the batting and the white burlap to the wood. Now this next step I forgot to take a picture of, but, I had 1' turquoise ribbon and added it to the front of the wood board in a crisscross motion and stapled it on the back.
Once the wood board was done I nailed it to the back of the frame. I also added bling to my board as well. Sorry the pictures are fuzzy. This is a great piece to use in your office, craft rooms, kid's room or kitchen. You can even use it to add photos and hang it up on the wall. This was for someone else who was using it in her store so businesses can leave their cards.
What would you use this handmade message board for? I love this idea and now I have to make myself one for my craft/office room. It's super hot in Florida, so all my furniture painting is being done inside. I have several more pieces to show you. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.
