Do it Yourself Message Board

I enjoy using attractive picture frames to create interesting memo boards to sell in my shop Seasonal Vignettes. I recently found this post on the Country Living website for creating your own message boards. The website gives a variety of pretty and practical boards to choose from. One suggestion is given by Gina Provenzano, a stylist, who made the magnetic board below. It is an easy project and shouldn't take you long to create. Here are the instructions:

Supplies: You will need a large frame, zinc-coated steel (aluminum and stainless steel will not hold magnets), particle board, and fabric.

Tip: Hot-glue mini magnets to the backs of playful objects, such as a mah-jongg tile and dice, to create your own custom magnets.
