I forgot to take “before” pictures again. This window box message center was a window box message center in its previous life, too.
So, just what was the makeover? Well, it originally had a split personality- half cork board and half chalkboard. The finish was glossy white. It didn’t sell in my booth, so I brought it home for a little rehab.
I sanded down the shine, distressed by sanding more heavily in certain areas, and added a glaze to highlight the distressing. Clear spray finish protects the new look.
For the frame area, I stretched jute twine across the opening for clipping messages, pictures, recipes, etc. The box area is just the spot for storing notepads and pens.
I probably should have used chicken wire, but I just wasn’t in the mood for puncture wounds. How would you use this window box frame?
