Do you ever just look through your favorite catalog just to see if there's something in there you can knock off? Check these out: burlap message boards from Ballard Designs. They sell for $49-$219. For reals? Cork board, burlap, brass nailheads...I'm thinking it can be done for a lil' bit cheaper, dontcha think? I love the simplicity of these, and I actually love all three sizes together and layered. This would make a great project for an office or message center. Unfortunately, I've got neither, so you if you do, you should make them. You really should.
