Garden Memo-Board

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...

Re: From Broom Holder to Flower Display!

I absolutely love it! Will also be stealing this idea once all the parts come together. I also love the white chippy board. My husband still doesn't get it; he would say "you're gonna paint that, right?" Heck no! Why would I want to ruin it? ha!

Re: Junk furniture for outside

I love all of them; keep 'em coming! The chippier, the better! You did a great job of putting the right pieces together.

Re: Vintage Screen becomes Office Organizer

I love it! It came out so nice! You did a great job! And the embossed wallpaper adds so much texture and style! Very nice! Keep 'em coming!

Re: A Bedspring Bud Vase

That is really cute. I've been on a lookout for bedsprings and think I might have to resort to actually buying a mattress and tearing it up.
I'm interested in hearing more about the rose from a soda-can; do share!

Re: Vintage Grain Sack Tote

Very nice job! I hope they sell well for you! I've been wanting some grain sacks but the ones I see are so gosh-darn expensive.

I was checking out your blog and love it and all your creations too!

Re: Garden Memo-Board

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:

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!

Re: Belted Bulletin Board

That is very clever! I love it and all your creations and your blog! My garden memo-board was inspired by yours that you made with the burlap. I gave credit to you on my blog and provided readers with a link. Thanks again!! Debbie

Re: Happy May Day!

First, I adore the flashlights; what will you think of next?!

Second, my submission to the name contest is: Rusty Rex or just Rex by itself.

Re: Vintage Door Desk

I always love your stuff Jen! Very nice!

Re: "Cush" Job...

Great use of those pieces (that we used to throw away!) I can also see them hanging on the wall as a small, cute bulletin board. Don't forget to let us know what you do with the jars!
