Vintage Frame Magnet Board

Greeetings! I have been beyond busy with our kitchen/family room make-over (reveal coming soon) as well as all of my other projects. Here is just a quick one.  I have a thing for frames, especially, vintage ones. As I've been going to room to room I've been collecting all of my unused/no longer being used frames and let me tell you...I never need to buy another frame!

Here is a quick and easy project for a favorite frame.

I painted it using my fav Rust-oleum gloss black and then cut a sheet of galvanized tin to fit inside. For a little extra something I added the crown decal.
This lives inside our pantry.

70's Trash to Guest Room Chic

I don't know where the time goes...I bought this piece for $50 from a local thrift store back in April and just finished it in the last couple days!  It took me forever to finish the last details, but I think it was worth the wait (well that's how I'm justifying my procrastination)

Aside from the finish I really like the hardware- it has character

After a couple coats of Zinser Primer I painted her with Rust-oleum Blossom White in satin. I sprayed the hardware with Rust-oleum Nickel.

I added a fabric bulletin boards to the inside as well as labels for the drawers.  We have lots and lots of guests (Mom is coming tomorrow) so I wanted to provide extra storage for them as well as guest supplies (more on that soon).

Look closely and you can see Finley on the bed ;-)

I painted the inside of the drawers Martha Stewart Cobblestone (left over from an earlier project)

You might recognize the liner - it's the Allen + Roth Wallpaper from this project.

I think my husband and maybe a few of my friends were really doubtful about this transformation....
