How in the heck is already September? I have no idea how this happened. All I know is it’s time for another Junk Revision Challenge! I have teamed up with some amazingly talented ladies to spread all kinds of junkin inspiration to people everywhere! Joy to the world! This months challenge is all about office spaces, and I’m super excited to be sharing all about how I transformed an antique window into an office memo board.
I started with an antique window I found while on a pickin trip. I vacuumed off all of the cobwebs and gave the glass a good scrubbing.
Just look at all that chippy goodness!
I draped a piece of twine across the front of the window frame and secured it to the back with hot glue.
The twine will act as a line for the mini clothespins to attach to. This is where notes and such can be hung.
I cut a piece of scrap fabric and hot glued it to the back of the window frame. By using fabric that matches your decor, this memo board can easily become a focal point to any room.
The last step is to decorate your new memo board! I picked up a package of mini clothespins at my craft store and used them to hang a few fun, pretty accessories.
For added character, I randomly placed my twine so it wasn’t just straight across.
The glass in the window makes a great dry erase marker board. It’s perfect for writing down notes or appointments.
I’m really pleased with my new memo board. It’s such a fun vintage accent to my office. I’m still in love with my succulent tin can planters too!
My office is still a work in progress, but it’s coming along nicely. To check out before and after pictures of my desk, check out my antique office desk makeover.
Do you have a junk piece that needs re-purposed? After all, one mans trash in another mans office memo board. Or something like that.
