Twin screens repurposed as bulletin boards

Twin screens repurposed as bulletin boards

I took old screens and put recycled homasote board (like cork but denser) and popped it into the recessed backside of the screens.  Either hot glue in place or use a nail.  Push pins will go through the mesh screen and strong magnets will stick to the metal.  Voila!
