As I mentioned in a recent post, I like to use what we have around our house before going out and buying something. Early on in summer, I was tired of seeing the old window screens stacked behind our garage, so I searched Pinterest and found this pin. I knew we could figure something out for a bulletin board for my daughter’s room.
I picked the two best looking screens and cleaned them off with a our garden hose, which actually pulled off some of the old paint for further “distressing” of the wood. Between some hardware stores and Hobby Lobby, I manged to find mini clothespins, eye-hooks, and D-hooks for hanging the screens on the wall. With a little help from Daddy O. at the end of summer, we managed to create and hang up these two screens.
The Finished Product
Now our only issue with the screens is that we didn’t make one for my son! A larger window screen is waiting by Daddy O’s tool bench to make it happen.
What “junk” have you re-purposed into something functional for your home?
