Quick and Cute Memo Board August 23, 2011

At this year’s Designer Showcase Home in San Francisco, I saw so many beautiful things! The list is never ending! Since I’m planning and dreaming about turning my son’s room into a project/art room, I thought that this dry erase board would be perfect!

So, I kept my eyes peeled for a quick and easy version (in keeping with the concept that no project should take more than an hour or require instructions!). I found this framed picture at a garage sale.

I disassembled the picture, cut burlap to fit, and made the cute little pendants from my card making supplies.

I put it all back together, using a staple gun to adhere the backing to the frame and then stood back for a look-see.

Well, it was OK, but kind of simple/dull. So, being the lazy person I sometimes am, I taped up the glass and sprayed the frame black, rather than taking the whole thing apart.

Another masterpiece has been created…all for about $6.00!

      Thanks for stopping by, Abby! (Miss HGTV Design Star)! I wish I could say it was my original idea! I’ve seen it done with a darling bright yellow and white fabric background too…lots of options!
