Trash to Treasure

How about a little trash to treasure, go on over to Kimms place and check out all the other trash that has been made into treasure.. ,, this was made using 4 pieces of scrap wood that I saw in the back of J's truck as I was passing ,, and thought they looked too good to just throw away,, . I laid them out on the floor,, and stapled them together with my little staple gun,, they didnt even fit flush together,, but that didnt matter cause they were getting covered with torn bits of brown paper using watered down tacky glue. Elmers glue would've been cheaper but I didnt really think about it at the time. It really didnt take much anyway. After all the board was covered , I stapled a pc of chicken wire across the back(note to self,, wear gloves next time u work with chicken wire) , then a piece of burlap and finally covered them both with a scrap pc of felt. I stapled a string of wire across the back to hang it with. And to finish it off I added some clothes pins that I covered with two different pcs of scrap paper. My daughter is using it to hang pictures on in her bedroom. ( The pictures arent great but hopefully you get the idea)


  1. I love this idea. I'm definitely making one :)

  2. Cute, what a great way to display pictures! This would be great for kids since they change their minds so often! :) Not that I ever do that...
