This Christmas I made my sister - who's just moved in with her boyfriend - an interior related gift. I made her this memo board.



I painted an MDF board with school board paint from levis. Then I added little canvases covered with vintage fabric so she can pin stuff to it. I got the inspiration from '101 woonideen', a Dutch interior magazine.

This looks good. Not only can she use it for a memo board or a headboard but it would look great as-is on the wall!

The board is 60 by 80 cm. I attached the canves first with glue, to hold them in position, and then secured them with little nails.

This is just lovely.  I love the Oriental look of your board.  I doubt that I could put anything on it.  Great job.
