Children's art board

My next project was inspired by my hubby's random junk(no, that is not the name of a blog, even though it could be a cool one). He loves to bring home really bizarre things. I tried to clean out the garage yesterday and it didn't take me long to realize that I wasn't the right person for the job. There was too much stuff in there that I had no idea why we had, so I turned the job over to Joe. I did however happen upon these little black numbers.
They are probably used for mailboxes or something...I decided to use them and make a place for my kidlets to display their artwork. I also decided to use some pink cardboard letters and some clothes pins.

I routed a piece of mdf and glued the clothes pins onto the bottom of the board.
After the glue had dried, I painted everything a light green. It was a little bright so I also sanded the edges and rubbed a dark stain to help age it a bit. After everything was nice and dry I randomly glued the letters and numbers on.I love the new addition to our loft!! And want to hear something cool? I was lucky enough to hit two studs when I hung it up and I didn't use a stud finder!! That never happens!


  1. are a creative freak of nature! Who thinks of stuff like that. You are amazing.

  2. I kept that random junk specifically for this art board, don't you remember?
