Repurposed Marshalls find Memo Board

You may have seen my post about finding 
a bunch of broken items in Marshall's clearance 
aisle... Well I brought them home and gave each of 
the projects a new life.... saving them from the 
Marshall's dumpster. 

I repurposed a couple of very chipped and broken 
frames with broken glass by giving them a beautiful
textured paint treatment...

And the bottom of this decorative box with the broken 

Today I'm using the broken top of that decorative box...

This framed top was green so I gave it coat of white. 
I sanded back the white so a little of the green came through.

I cut a piece of foam core to the size of the frame opening.

I covered the foam core with a piece of canvas using
spray adhesive to attach the fabric to the board.

I glued thumb tacks to the back of
gems,  buttons, keys, and Scrabble pieces
to make unique tacks.
