You can make it Too!

Besides keeping up with my Design Star episodes on Sunday night, I have been painting a lot and trying to come up with new ideas for my art. This one I credit my husband with! The top image is a distressed moulding frame in pinks, then my husband cut a sheet metal piece and applied enamel paint. Voila! A magnet memo board. They come with my clothespin magnets, this is such a sweet idea love them. The bottom photo is an antique frame painted white then I applied a pearl pink glaze paint to the raised accents, the metal panel is painted a flesh pale pink enamel spray, then I hand painted roses at top and bottom corners. If you don't paint, some rose decals would look pretty too. They are so much fun to create . I'm working on more creative ideas to post soon, hope you all are having a fun summer! Hugs,Kimberly

Hi Kim,

What an awesome idea! Thanks for sharing - think I'll have to make one for myself. Your handpainted (gorgeous) roses are a beautiful touch.
Have a fabulous week.
Sandy :)

I just love these memo boards. Using a Shabby Chic photo frame is just the most creative idea and super romantic. Love it! Amy :)
