Refrigerator message board

I've never been the type of person who likes magnets all over the fridge.  It makes the kitchen appear cluttered to me.  Recently though, I added a calendar to the side of the fridge to help keep up with daily reminders.  Going a little further I decided to make a message board to help keep up with misc. items I always seem to stash in the junk drawer and forgot about later.  Items such as coupons expiring that week, notes to myself etc.  I've seen similar message boards all over blog land.  Here is my version!
                                                                                


To construct this board I used an open frame I purchased at the thrift store, leftover outdoor fabric from a pillow I made, and supplies purchased from the dollar store.

The push pins are actually made from erasers.  The keyboard erasers had a small circular cut out in the back that I was able to stick the flat side of the push pins through.  Not bad, huh!!!

  1. This is really good and,although you're right that these boards have been made quite a lot, I think this is a really original take on it.

    Janelle at Isabella and Max's Rooms is looking for craft projects to feature and I'm sure she'd love this with the material you've chosen. Just thought you might like to know.....
