This repurposed wood shutter message board was a really easy project. First I cut the shutter into, using the smaller section for my shutter memo board, then sanded the edges.
I first though about painting it turquoise but not wanting to paint each little slate in the wood shutter I decided to go the easy route. Use my magic aging solution, which was quick and easy.
I guess the shutter being a different type of wood that I usually use my magic solution on it turned more brown instead of grey.

I left it to sit overnight to get good and dry, then I painted the top solid section with three coats of chalk board paint.
I found the wire basket at Hobby Lobby and removed the handle. I drilled four small holes in the shutter in the position where I wanted my basket to be. Then wired it in place, twisting and tighten from the back of my wood shutter.
I had some medium size clothes pins to use to hold business cards and notes.
I seen a fabric covered spool banner on Pinterest and decided to add one to my message board. What do you think?
