So I had gotten this bulletin board YEARS ago.
I had actually gotten 2 and given one as a Christmas gift.
I knew I'd want to do something with it myself.
It sat in my closet forEVER, waiting for some love.
I would occasionally glance upon it, wondering how I could give it a new life.
You see, purple is NOT my color.
Doesn't match anything I have.
But ever bulletin board deserves a second chance, right?
So fast forward a long time.
When I moved into my new house, it's purpose became clear.
And it finally got it's long-awaited makeover.
The first thing I did was get rid of the purple!
Then I added the fabric that will be coordinating with my craft room.
(you may remember this fabric from the front porch makeover a while back)
I didn't have any skinny ribbon but I did have some thick ribbon I used.
It's hard to see but I kept the silver pins.
This is great to tuck in messages, reminders, bills, etc.
For the other side, I ditched the photo thing.
I didn't need it and it could have a better purpose in life.
So I cut a piece of white scrapbook paper the size of the square.
I chose white because I wanted a neutral background.
Now I have a great dry erase board!
The glass is perfect to jot notes on and cleans SUPER easy!
I love repurposing old, unusable items into new, functional items!
Have you repurposed anything lately?
