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..

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.
