I finished this project forever ago, but It was in my entry and the light-bulb had burnt out! This week Mr. Project replaced it so I was able to take pictures!
I love this chicken wire board. It keeps me super organized. I keep my bills, out-going mail, reminder, notes, calendar etc. all up here next to my doorway so I don’t miss a thing.
I especially love the calender, its super simple and easy to get a lot of writing in each of the days.
The process to make this board is SUPER easy. You just need a few simple items. 1. A Frame, 2. Chicken Wire, 3. Nail Gun, 4. Tin Snips, 5. Spray Paint (optional), 6. Bulldog Clips
You can get a frame anywhere since it doesn’t need glass or a back. You might have one laying around, or you could find one at goodwill or a garage sale. Once you have a frame, the first step is staple the chickenwire to the backside of the frame. After you have stapled the wire around the edges, go ahead and snip the excess chicken wire. I recommend gloves and protective eye-wear for this step.
That is the bulk of the hard labor for this project. If you want to make it a little shabby, spice it up or just make it look new, grab a can of spray paint and go at it. I like how the paint looks on the chickenwire, so I didn’t mask mine off. If you don’t want your chicken wire painted, you can paint your frame before you put on the wire.
Once your frame is painted, you’re all ready to decorate it! I made these cute labels & a calendar for you to download. Or you can design your own!
Here is how I organized mine. I hung up the tags & calendars with some silver bulldog clips. I love those things!
