This is an old frame that I picked up for .50. The print was ugly and part of the lattice was broken.
The damage to the lattice.
I repaired the lattice with a popsicle stick. Yes, I had to eat the popsicle to get to the stick. 
A coat of sage green paint, cork board and its ready to take messages!

Thanks for sharing,
