Tack Boards

My latest bargain was found at my local Goodwill store.  Just stopped in to find a gray belt, which I found.  I always go through the leaning stack of framed art in the back.  I found not one, but two bamboo tack boards with white frames.  They looked so cool, I thought at first they were just framed bamboo.  Then I realized someone had made them to be tack boards.  They totally look like they are right out of a Ballard Designs catalog!  Bargain Tack Boards

Tack Board #2 I’m going to start part-time homeschooling (yes, you can do that) with my oldest daughter this fall, so I knew these would work great in our new study.  This room was previously our nursery, and now will function as my design office and Audrey’s schoolroom.  I envision using one to post special assignments or studydates.   The other might be where I pin my daughter’s latest piece of artwork.

But you know what?  There’s other ways to use these.  Since there are two, they’d work great as a pair of everchanging art displays.  Simply cut out colorful scrapbook papers or old wallpaper samples and tack them in the middle.  They’d be great in a child’s room.  Change them out when you want a different look.   Changeable Art Tack Board

Idea Board Or, I could use them as mini-inspiration boards to pin fabrics, color swatches, decor ideas, and pics when working on a room for a client!

What’s the best thing about these?  They were only $2.99 a piece.  And they’re recycled.  And the money went to a good cause.  And they make me happy!  Go, Goodwill!

Oh, I love going through the framed art at thrift stores. I see so many great things. I often think of you when I am there and wonder if you might like and could use some of them. I absolutely have no place to put them all in my house. You must have so much fun decorating other peoples houses with your great finds!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
