Memo Board Message Center

6:00 AM

Sometimes in the thrift store, 
something just jumps out and says "Buy Me"....

Today, an adorable vintage memo board gets a face lift 
with a coat of grey paint and stripes!

This brown wood grain memo board was vintage but perfect...
not a scratch on it or a push pin hole in the cork.

 The sad little memo board was just sitting there waiting for someone to bring it home and give it a new life.

"Buy me!" it yelled as I passed....

So, being a pushover... I brought it home. 

I removed all the hardware and gave the dated  
wood a coat of grey paint.

I used painter's tape to tape off the pockets. 

and gave them beautiful stripes!

All the hardware and the notepad were put back in place...

Now this adorable message center with mail pockets, 
notepad and hooks to hang keys is happy to have a 
new life in someone's stylish home!

Maybe yours... take it home today...
available in my Etsy shop!
