Chicken Wire Message Board

REPOST: This was my first week's project on SYTYC. Here it is if you didn't get a chance to head over there! The second week voting is up! I'd love it if you'd go vote for your favorite. Can you spot mine?

This project first started out as a mirror, covered in disney stickers that refused to come off. {thanks to some Goo Be Gone they all came off ;)} I thought it would be an adorable chalkboard so I painted chalkboard paint onto the back and it was fabulous. For a couple weeks. Then my husband was vacuuming and it dropped and shattered. Fantastic. Then I had the brilliant idea to turn it into a message board/bow holder. I couldn't be more pleased! It holds a million bows and little messages/to-do lists/cards & invitations. I love the way it turned out!


  1. So cute Camille! I have an old mirror that needs to become a chalkboard. Did you just paint the glass?

    1. I turned the mirror around and painted the back. Haha since I'm non-commital and thought I might change my mind ;) But it worked great! Until it broke...

  2. Great repurpose project. It looks adorable.

  3. This is perfect! I've been looking for something exactly like this -- I wish you were selling! :)


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! I love to hear from you :)
