Behold! A noteboard made from an old ugly painting!! I found this little gem over at Design*Sponge, and was so tickled with delight I can hardly wait to go to Value Village, Classy Rack, Goodwill, etc. etc. to find just the right painting to do this with. Check out her directions here. I thought it would work also as a push-pin board, if you put corkboard beneath the painting, but she does it as a magnetic board.
There are some exciting things happening in my brain of late, hopefully I will have some concrete things to share with you all in the near future!
