Farmhouse Organization Board
Today I will be sharing my Farmhouse Organization board made from a reclaimed wood frame, chicken wire and antique sewing machine drawer along with something you may find surprising. I think you will be pleasantly surprised if you like the look of reclaimed wood. I have also included a couple of tips you may or may not have heard of. If you have been following me, you know I have been giving my Guest room/home office a farmhouse style makeover. I shared the desk accessories here last week using vintage cotton spools.
As I mentioned my home office serves a dual purpose of home office/ guest room, so making sure everything is organized on my desk is very important especially when we have guest. When creating my organization board, I wanted to style it in a farmhouse look to go along with the decor of the farmhouse style and re-organization of the room.
Antique Sewing Machine Drawer
Burlap Wrapped boxes
Preparing Pieces for Organization Board: Antique Sewing Machine Drawer and Chipboard Arrow
The antique sewing machine drawer and chipboard arrow both received a white washed finish
The antiques drawer will be used to hold 3 small burlap boxes to hold small office supplies, post it’s, paper clips, etc.
How to make a Farmhouse Organization Board
chicken wire was attached with a staple gun to a reclaimed frame that we already had (however you could use any frame) Using the same white chalk paint the frame and the chicken wire were white washed.
How to create a weathered wood backing to your frame
Using the thinnest wood that we could find at Home Depot a backing was measured to the size of the frame. OK are you ready for SURPRISE ? Using Weathered Wood Bulletin Board Paper! I love the look of this weathered wood paper it looks so real. The weathered wood paper was cut to the size of the thin wood and attached with spray adhesive. So easy and a lot less expensive. check out the supply list and click on the weathered wood, you will be surprised on how inexpensive it is.
I love this faux Weathered Wood look and I still have so much leftover…I can see so many more projects to come!!!
Here is one: How to cover memo boards
Just for fun I added I added some of the weathered wood paper to two of the memo boards to match the farmhouse organization board.
Cut a strip to the sized you want to cover your memo board, (You could cover the whole memo board, but I wanted some of the white to show) spray the boards with adhesive, or you could use mod podge, add paper to memo board and smooth it out flat.
To attache the memo boards to cup hooks were spray painted white and screwed into the inner frame.
On the back of the desk is a cork board, instead of putting a nail in it I decided to use Command Damage Free Picture and Frame Hanging, Large Strips
- Damage-Free hanging
- No nail holes
- Hold strongly yet removes cleanly
- Picture locks in place
- Works on a variety of surfaces
- After painting, wait at least 7 days for the paint to cure before applying Command Picture Hanging strips.
The antique drawer was hung the same way, but the outer strip was weaved through the chicken wire to secure it even more while pressing the velcro to the inner piece of velcro.
To attache the arrow, a piece of jute/twine was strung through the chicken wire and wrapped around the arrow and tied in a bow. There is still enough exposed chicken wire hang photos, business cards or reminder notes with small clothes pins.
