DIY – Artwork Turned Bulletin Board

Often times we have great pieces around the house, it just takes a bit creativity, imagination, and some TLC to morph it into a new piece.  A perfect example is a once art piece that I stumbled upon at Hilary’s house while Erica and I were recently there to help her with her dining room and kitchen accessorizing.

Before – the colors just didn’t work with the space anymore and Hilary was thinking of getting rid of the piece altogether.  She then told me she wanted a bulletin board for her kitchen and the wheels starting turning in my head.  Why not turn the once art work piece into a bulletin board?

Leaving the frame color the same, using the beautiful coral hue that is in the dining room,  adding a couple cork pieces, and would you look at that?  It looks like a brand new piece.

(DISCLAIMER – these AFTER photos were taken at night – the lighting is awful and the colors are much prettier in real life.)

Total cost – $9 dollars, some good quality time with left over dining room paint, and a steady hand while free hand painting.

Stop and think – what pieces might be laying around the house that just need a little update or perhaps a new purpose?  You might just be amazed and able to save some money reinventing a tired piece.
