Cushy Message Board

Here's a message board idea for you.







This was a quick project.  It used to be a cushion for a little bench.  I wrapped burlap around the cushion, and hot glued it in place. You can see the holes where the base was attached.  I actually showed you this bench last year in my " Back To Work " post.  What happened was, a fellow dealer needed a base, but didn't want the top.  No problem.  I sold him the base, and knew I'd eventually do something with the cushion.





I attached a hanger,




and now it's a message board.  It works perfectly.









Super simple.

Isn't it amazing what you can do with something somebody else would have tossed? I'll have to remember this!

I love that you repurposed a feed sack rather than using new fabric. It is so creative.
