The same weekend I got the Pig had to go, my sister Cheryl and I went to an antique barn, we both bought an old map/blueprint or printers drawer. She made a printer box chalk board out of hers (see on State-line Crafter's); and me, I sat on mine for months, contemplating the project. I finally decided a pin board.
With all my supplies, I first measured, then cut a piece of white board to fit, glued in drawer, measured and cut a piece of cork to fit over that, glued, then set out to make it fun and practical for me.
On the back, I measured then glued a piece of wood to even both sides, twisted in hangers, and put wire through each hole to hang on the wall.
Now I'm going to decorate. I made a little box out of a paint stick for pencils and pens, you can never find one when you need one....glued the box on the bottom ledge of the drawer.
While looking for baby clothes pins, which I glued three going down the side to hang photos/coupons, I came across this little picket fence, Mother had for some reason. I added it to the bottom for a quick catch all.
Printed out the month of June's dates to remember,
pinned a lemonade recipe I've been wanting to try,
and wa..la... my pin board is finished
Thanks for stopping by!
