Ugly Plastic Mirror = Shabby Chic Bulletin Board

Monica over at Crafty Nest took a very unattractive plastic mirror and turned it into a shabby chick bulletin board. Her supplies included:


  • a large plastic picture frame (a great goal item for your next thrift store/rummage sale outing)
  • homasote board (find a local dealer here)
  • fabric
  • polyester batting
  • spray paint (formulated for plastic, like Krylon Fusion)
  • wide grosgrain ribbon
  • drawer pulls (also a potential rummage sale item)
  • 1- 1/2" long hanger bolt
  • furniture nails or thumbtacks
  • newspaper
