Message me (The Old Fashioned Way)!

Don't you just love a little bling in your accessories? I adore mirrored pieces, especially frames. Recently, I came across a mirrored print at Goodwill for $20. Although that's a little steep for Goodwill, I decided it was the perfect shape and size to turn into a message board. I envisioned some cute fabric with ribbon or even cork. Here are some great message boards to inspire an office you'll ADORE:

Really, any cool frame can be easily turned into a message board.

I have a magnetic chalkboard in my kitchen, but stuff is always flying off of it in the whirlwind of kids passing by. Cork was definitely the way to go.

I simply removed the glass and used spray adhesive to  apply cork to the backing. Cork can be found on a roll at most craft stores, but it's not very thick, so I recommend adding some extra cardboard or press board between the layer of cork and the back of the frame.

I love the idea of stamping the cork like The Winthrop Chronicles' Blog details here.
This is the finished frame before I hung it up. I was worried about putting holes in the wallpaper, so I'm waiting for Patrick to hang it for me. His math skills are far superior.
Pretty much my motto. Yep. Dead on.

I'll have more on mirrored frames in a future post. You can see my vintage travel prints are also framed in them. Those are from Target in case you gotta have one today. I'm hooked! figure out what to do about all those fingerprints.
