Message Board Out of Old Cookie Sheet

Today I am rediscovering America:) Internet has so many versions of this idea - how to re-purpose an old cookie sheet, and I have decided (why not!) to join this crowd, especially when I have everything I need. Ladies and Gentlemen, I am proudly presenting MY version of this fabulous idea!
Materials needed:

Old Cookie Sheet
Paint for metal
Old wallpaper or any cute paper
Glue that works with metal
Bear/Soda Bottle Caps
Any light weight container,
to be used as pen/pencil holder on message board
Wine corks
2 Screws with loops
Rope or I am using a chain from my old necklace.

Step 1. Paint or Spray paint your cookie sheet. Let it dry per instructions.

Step 2. Cut down to size and glue down the paper of your choice to the bottom of the tray and let it dry.

Step 3. Do the same with your container

Step 4. Attach magnets to the back along the seam

Step 5. Glue magnets to the top of the bottle caps. Glue wallpaper to the inside of the cap.

Step 6. Glue wine corks to the back of the tray.

Step 7. Attach screws with loops to each end.

Step 8. Feed the chain through and lock.

Step 9. Congratulate yourself on a brand new message board:)

Step 10. Now, put it to a good use - start posting important messages.

Happy re-purposing everyone!


P.S. I would love to know the name of the original author of this brilliant idea
