Junky Old Memo Board

I'm thinking maybe a new weekly post series?
What to do with the junk in my garage?
Junkyard Creations?... 
Garage Creations?...
Well anyway, what do you get when you cross 
an old piece of junky wood... 


with an old grate...


and some other stuff?


Well watch and see...
First I ran some black wire back and forth around the grate...



And using old mismatched screws and washers,
I attached them...



Then I printed out the word "Notes" on 
my computer and transferred the word onto the board...



Then I painted in the letters...


and sanded them to make them look as old as the board...


 Then I put a sawtooth hanger on the back...


and attached the clothespins,
embellishments, and my new business card...


Pretty darn cool from a bunch
of old junk! Don't you think?


Like it? Please follow me!

  5. Note to Aaron: I have a granddaughter named Charley and had an aunt named Billie. You could sign yourself Ms. Aaron, just the way the actress from "The Waltons" was credited as being Miss Michael Learned.
