I found this pretty frame at a garage sale recently and decided to use it to make a magnetic memo board.
I have a few memo boards at my booth, but not magnetic, so I thought it would make a nice change. I also have two chalkboards there, too, so we’ll see how a magnetic one does. I took the picture out and painted the frame black using Maison Blanche Wrought Iron. Using some wax gave it a bit of a sheen.
Prior to waxing, I distressed it a little bit along the detailed area to allow some of the original color to show through.
I then covered my metal piece with this black and white toile I bought from fabric.com, using a heavy duty spray adhesive, and popped it into place.
I use this fitting tool that I bought several years ago to put those “divet” pieces to hold the metal in place in the frame. It has also come in handy for other framing projects that I’ve done.
A perfect piece for a desk area, craft or sewing room, kitchen, anywhere you want something pretty to hold some notes and reminders.
Now that it’s done I want to keep it!
