Easy Chickenwire Messageboard

Want instant country charm?
Create a chickenwire memo board.
It's easy to create with a few supplies.

You need an old frame.  I got mine from a thriftstore for $2.
Some chicken wire--from a hardware supply store.  
Metal shears. (absolute must for cutting wire easily).
First-I painted the frame with Duck Egg 
from Annie Sloan and used the dark wax.
 Once that dried, I cut the chicken wire to fit the opening in the back
 I secured the chicken wire by using the existing staples 
that were in the frame to hold the glass in.
I just bent them down to hold the chicken wire.  
Nothing new required.
 Done! Super cute and handy with clothespins or magnets!

  1. It came out really cute! I love the color! I also like the square chicken wire; I didn't see that kind.

    Awhile back, I made one too, and my daughter really enjoys it. Strong magnets will stick to it too.

    1. I love the way the square looks too! Wanted to be a little different! :o) aimee
