I've been working on some projects for my house
that I want to show you.
Keep in mind a couple things while viewing
any pictures I may post of my house and things in it:
A) I am not a professional interior designer.
(as you'll obviously see-go easy on me)
B) I know there are tons of blogs where people
show their extravagant homes and projects they
do in them.....this isn't one of those blogs!
I prefer to "keep it real" (so does my wallet).
My house is not a magazine photo...it is real
and we have to live in it.
OK-now that I've got that disclaimer out of the way....
let me show you the new "message center" I have made for
a small little wall between our living room and kitchen area.
In the past I've had a dry-erase/cork board hanging here.
I saw an idea similar to this in a magazine a few months
back and wanted to do it. In the magazine the boards
were actually made out of cookie sheets.
I wanted something smaller than cookie sheets
and I found some clearance magnet boards at
The Wood Connection for $3.46/board.
WITH THE NAKED EYE YOU CAN'T SEE WHERE THE MOD PODGE
UP TOP STOPS AS PROMINENTLY AS YOU CAN IN THE PHOTO.
IT MUST BE THE FLASH.
IT'S DRIVING ME NUTS IN THE PICS SO I WILL GO AND
SWIPE THE MOD PODGE UP TO THE TOP OF THE BOARD SO
YOU CAN'T SEE WHERE IT ENDS.
Anyway, I mod podged some scrapbook paper onto two
of the magnet boards and painted the other one with
some chalkboard paint.
The decorative wood pieces are from a
secret treasure store of mine.
I have had the wood pieces and the chalkboard
paint for a long time so the only thing I had to
buy for this project were the magnet boards
and the spray paint for the wood ($3).
