Bulletin boards are becoming very easy to find at thrift stores, etc. for cheap!   And they can be transformed so easily!   I had fun putting this one together and am looking forward to more.

I am in Tucson Arizona and am desperately trying to find that adorable fencing - all squiggly like yours - It's nowhere to be had near me, new or used. I see it in yards, but it has been there for years and no one is willing to give it up. Any ideas of where I can get my hands on some? I prefer it to be USED! I'll show you what I am going to make with it! Oneworldstudiowest@gmail.com Posted: 8:01 am on February 24th

ShabbyGardens writes: Thanks everyone! Actually that isn't fabric; it's drawer-liner paper that I just cut to fit and glued down. To secure the fencing, I bent long pieces of the fencing and inserted it thru holes I drilled at the bottom and up the sides of the board. Then on the back, I just curled the wire up, so it doesn't stick out too far or scratch any walls.

More pictures and details of the process are on my blog: www.shabbygardencreations.blogspot.com.

Again, thanks so much. This was my very first post; I've been a long-time lurker and slowly coming out of my shell and figuring out all this posting stuff. It's fun!
