Hi again :) It is time for another fun challenge over at Magnolia Down Under Challenges. This week we are looking for Kitchen themed projects. My kitchen has been in serious need of a notice board/grocery list/organiser type project for a long time now so this was my chance to do something about it!


The board itself is actually the back of a picture frame. My hubby had taken two off a frame as they were too thick for the picture he wanted to put in the frames, so I had snaffled the back boards knowing they would come in handy at some stage. I painted the edges and mod podged on some checked paper.

I think there are about seven different Magnolia stamps on my kitchen board. Most are from the A Little Yummy collection. I crossed some ric rak and glued on some buttons so I could add little bits and pieces.  The chipboard letters were painted in acrylic paint and then given a good dose of loose glitter.  The crochet flower was a pressie from my gorgeous friend Ingrid - she made it herself! Thanks Ing - I look at your beautiful flower every time I open my pantry door!
At the base, Hubby drilled a couple of holes so I could tie a pen to the board - we are forever losing pens in our house, haha, I don't think we're unique there!And to add some wire to hang it.  I've also glued on some tiny pinch clips to hang my grocery list and take away menus and some mini pegs to the top of the banner.

 The flowers are a bit of a mix. I have used the Deep Ivory Aster Daisies and 15 mm open roses in Baby Blue and Chocolate from Wild Orchid Crafts. The white flat flowers are Petaloo. All of the lace and ribbon are from my stash.

So! There is my new kitchen board. I am so happy with it. I fianlly have something in my kitchen to keep me organised!

I would like to enter it into a couple of challenges:

Thanks for visiting me today! I hope you are having a great weekend :)
