DIY project: Chicken wire memo board

Today I want to share with you how to create a simple memo board with an old frame and some chicken wire. You will need:

  • a frame
  • chicken wire
  • primer
  • paint in the colour of your choice (I used Farrow & Ball Orangery)
  • felt
First you need to clean the frame with a damp cloth.

Then paint the primer straight onto the frame. Give it a couple of coatings.

Your frame should look like this now.

Use a staple gun to attach the wire onto the frame and cover the back with felt so the wire can't damage the wall.
Et voila:

Let me know how you're getting on.

This memo board will shortly be available on my Etsy shop.

Have a good start into the week.
