Altered Noticeboard.

I needed a noticeboard for my craft room, so I picked up this cheap one from a discount shop. It was only €4, so if my plans went horribly wrong it wouldn't be too much of a disaster! 

I sprayed the frame with black gloss spray paint first. However, the coverage wasn't great, so I went over the whole thing with black acrylic paint. I used some Alexander Henry fabric to cover the cork board. I attached it with scor-tape and then pushed the edges of the fabric into the frame with a scalpel. To finish, I hot glued some red buttons to the corners. The red and black buttons in the middle are hot glued onto push pins to jazz them up a bit. Looking at the picture, I realise I forgot to reattach the white board marker.
I plan on using the white board to keep track of any challenges I want to enter. I probably won't use the bottom part, because I like the fabric too much to cover it!
