Kitchen Re-do, Memo Board


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I found this burlap memo board at Hobby Lobby, half-off it was around $8 and is 16×20.  I tend to gravitate toward anything and everything that has burlap on it, around it, in it!! I really liked the memo board idea for this specific spot in the kitchen where I had a large picture hanging, but it was too plain to hang it by itself so I decided to find a frame.  Hobb’s (that’s what we call Hobby Lobby) open frames were also 50% off.  I found this barnwood frame in the size I needed – sale price was $15 (no glass or hanger on the frame but the memo board had hangers).  So my thought was that I’d just remove the plastic & hot glue the memo board into the frame . . . . yeah, that didn’t work.  The memo board was not real pliable . . . soooo it was time to bring out the big guns (thanks Wayne, yes I still have your nail gun)!!! Oh my word, I forgot how much I loveeeeee power tools!! I was able to shoot some brad nails through the board into the frame.  Seriously, I love nail guns!! I found the metal flower and number tag at a craft store in California.  I just hot glued those to the frame – a simple & inexpensive idea!!
