I always had a pin board, even when i was a kid, i had one in my bedroom, hanging little notes, pictures of my friends, cards…My girls have one in their bedroom too, but you can’t see an inch of the board!! In every house i’ve lived in , i had a board. Now , since moving back i’ve been itching for one, but i didn’t want the usual store-bought one, that you hang directly on your wall..I wanted something different. And then i saw these, and i think it’s a great idea! You can even paint the old style frame any color you want!
