Cute and Cheap Memo Board
So today I decided to make a memo board. I was inspired by this cute one I saw on Pinterest from Make and Takes. Sure I could have just gone to Wal-Mart or Target and bought one, but it would have been as C-U-T-E or matched my kitchen.
Here's how I made it:
I started with a super cheap 8x10 frame from the Dollar Tree. I was really lucky to find one that was made of unfinished wood. After lightly sanding it I added the first coat of paint.
After the paint dried (about 2 hours) I used Aleene's Original Tacky Glue to attach three buttons on the frame. I found these big wooden buttons at Wal-Mart. I liked that they were a natural oak similar to the cabinets and island in my kitchen.
After the glue on the buttons dried, I put the glass back in the frame, along with some scrap book paper. How cool is it that the paper looks like burlap?
I added magnets to the back so I can hang it on the refrigerator. I attached a dry erase marker to the top with a Velcro dot.
I think it turned out really cute! What do you think?
