I stuck some magnets on this washboard & it just looked too boring hanging on my wall.  I looked in my stash of project material & found a fence picket, yardsticks & some chicken wire.  After a few cuts to the picket & yardsticks, this is what I came up with.  I added chicken wire to the opening on the back, along with some pieces of yardstick.  The advertising at the top couldn't be seen, so I added cork.  So...voila....a memo station was created!
