Memo Board

Hey Guys,

So I have banned myself from buying anything more from the thrift stores and op shops until I use all the items I have. You might remember this one from a gazillion posts ago but it is one huge frame.



Elizabeth wanted a chalk board and a place to hold her pictures.

I covered the back of the frame in white vinyl, I really love the texture of it and painted up one of those wooden craft signs. I found the ribbon board in Kmart, I could've made one but it was $9 and it probably wasn't much more than what I would have paid in craft supplies. Then I painted the frame.


I wanted to put it above her desk, but she insisted she wanted it by her bed, whatever it's her room so I put it there.

DIY Delight or Disaster, I love the vinyl (faux leather not sticky stuff) backing most it's not bad lets say delight.

Thanks for reading,

Mel xo

  4. Very pretty, with a nice "girlie" feeling - and for only pennies! Amazing what can be recycled when someone has an eye for what a single coat of paint can do for an ordinary discard.
    I have often made myself rules about not buying a single new item until I've used up what I've already got - this applies to quilt fabric mostly! - but I find myself cheating after a short time. Hope your will power lasts longer than mine does!

  7. She is going to love filling that up with whatever strikes her fancy. Good job not buying anything new until you've used what you got.

  8. Very cute! Mel, I'm dying a little inside over your DIY projects because I may be DIYing a "new" fixer upper home soon. My fingers are crossed...I'm combing through your archives today allowing myself to finally get a little excited about it. I love this frame idea, I could use this a million ways!

  9. Sounds like she's got an idea of how she wants her room laid out and i think that's awesome that you are letting her decide. The frame has a whole new look. Love it!!

  10. Love it- what a creative way to incorporate chalk board and message board. I may have to steal this idea, once I get back to projects....
