Repurposing an Old Message Board
Sometimes you can find great items in the clearance section of home decor stores. That's exactly what happened to me yesterday when I found this message board for only $5.
The frame was in rough shape and I definitely did not love the artwork on the glass but I instantly had big plans for this fun find.
(1) Repaint Frame
After wiping down the frame I gave it a fresh coat of crisp, white paint.
(2) Replace Whiteboard
Next, I used whiteboard vinyl to re-cover the whiteboard section of the message board. It was scratched up a bit and I wanted a fresh, clean look. Just measure the whiteboard area then cut the same size piece of vinyl and apply it.
(3) Cover Center with Chalkboard Vinyl
Now, I want to cover up the unsightly artwork in the center with something more my style. I chose chalkboard vinyl paper.
Measure the area to be covered and cut the chalkboard vinyl to size. Apply it carefully, using a credit card to remove any bubbles.
(4) Hang and Enjoy
I hung the newly refreshed message center in our kitchen because that's where we enter and exit the house. The kids can leave reminders for mom and mom can make sure the kiddos aren't forgetting last night's homework!
