DIY Memo Board Creation

I try not to take myself too seriously.

Sometimes when I'm bored I like to see what I can create
from what I have around the house.

Truth be told many times I take my creation apart after I've built it.

So if you're reading my blog one day and you say to yourself
"what the heck is she thinking..."  

I'm not, I call it DIY practice.

I'm exercising the right side of my brain.

So in keeping with the "I have no idea what I am going to do with this" theme today...

I started with this crate.

I stained it with a vinegar/steel wool solution and added some bling; a hook to the side and a cork tile.

then an old piece from an outdoor lamp as a stand.

I made push pins with numbered scrabble tiles and thumb tacks.

And I was done!

What is it you ask? A desk top bulletin board?
A kitchen recipe holder?

Actually... I don't know...
but it scratched my creative itch for today.
