Creating a Pin Board

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.




I salvaged this measuring stick from an old yard ornament that my grandmother made, cut to fit up the side, glued.  
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.



I found a cute little bird house with birch roof, glued it onto a stick, and glued to the side of the board.







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!
Happy Crafting.
