DIY Stenciled Burlap Memo Board

Are you a coffee lover like I am? 
Burlap and jute

I am a lover of all things coffee so when I found this coffee stencil from Old Sign Stencils by Funky Junk Interiors.

I'm using this stencil on everything!

There are several different stencils to choose from and
these are a few of my favorites.

You can see the stenciling tutorial on the Coffee Station post I did using the same stencil.

This time I stenciled a piece of old, wrinkled burlap 
using the same process.

When the stencil was dry, I wrapped the burlap around a
wooden frame ... stapling it all the way around.

I used thick jute to criss cross the front of the memo board, using screws to secure the jute to the sides.

Next I antiqued small clothespins to use to hang notes and photos to the memo board.

This recipe is great for aging new wood as well.

The burlap message center looks just like I used an old coffee sack to create it... wrinkles, stains and all!
