diy...a new take on the memo / picture board

It is DIY day at A Soft Place to Land and I am linkin' up!

I bought a big, cheap frame in the clearance section at Hobby Lobby.

I primed it.

Then I spray painted it with Rust-Oleum Painter's
Touch Colonial Red (sorry no picture for this step)

Then I turned it over
Added a saw tooth hook thingy
Several ribbons and seam binding in various lengths w/ ring clips tied to the ends
Then I used my trusty staple gun to stable the ribbon to the back.

And voila!!!
A cute memo / picture board for my craft area!




Another thought I had after I did this is that I could add some cork board or fabric covered foam board to the back to allow more space for my stuff. Might have to do that some time. I made this a couple months ago...my clips are full now!
