Burlap Message Center8:27:00 PM
Once again the clearance area in
my favorite store gave me a great idea...
A broken burlap shadow box with a glass framed top
was on clearance for about 75% off... The glass was broken,
the hinges were gone, but I saw the potential in the pieces.
The broken top of this shadow box will be seen again in another
project you can be sure of that... but today I'm
just repurposing the bottom of the box.
I dry brushed white paint over the already green
color of the box then stenciled a design into the corner
of the burlap using Graphite chalk paint.
The next step was to add thick jute, screwing
it into the side of the box on each side then
adding another piece for hanging.
The jute is for hanging notes and photos
using DIY aged clothespins.
I painted metal pushpins with oil rubbed bronze paint
to hold notes to the burlap.
Hop over and see the reloved Marshall's frames
that were also saved from their dumpster...
