I love it's new grey and yellow paint job. Bad news? The paint will not adhere solidly despite everything we have tried. So...this may only be a temporary solution.
Moving on, today I knocked off the Ballard Designs Sisal Message board. Their price $139+.
Granted, their version is larger BUT
I made this using a 16x20 frame I already had and a rug from Target.
The rug was $12.99 and actually big enough to make 2 boards. I simply placed the cardboard backing from the frame on the rug to use as a cutting template. I placed it inside the frame, minus the glass and voila:
I got this. Start to finish, it only took about 15 minutes.
What do you think? I need a few more straight pins for fasteners and I hope to make a few decorative push pins as well.
