A Crafty Clipboard Project

I recently found these clipboards at a garage sale and I had to scoop them up! Clipboards are are so utiliarian and yet they can be used in so may decorative ways. They are great for displaying old photos, kids art work, message boards, inspirations boards, and so much more. I have several old photos that I would like to display and placing them on old clip board adds to their vintage charm. I simply painted the clipboard black, cut decorative paper to fit, and clipped on the old photo. I think it has a pottery Barn feel and the price was right!



I checked out the web for some additional inspiration and I found these fun photos on Flicker. Enjoy!

  4. They look fabulous. I can't believe you found that many pictures with clipboards on the walls. I wish I had more wall space in the kitchen....I would definitely do that.
