The "Board" Project...

I found 4 of these ammo crate lids at a new junk store that I found... stay tuned to see what they turn into.Well so far I have created 2 message board out of 2 of the lids.
 This is the first one.. First I sanded it down with my palm sander, did a little white wash. Then I nailed some old square nails at the top and kinda towards the bottom, wrapped some wire across, added some cafe curtain clips and on the back I added a long wire hanger.

The next one is kinda the same, I sanded it down, but I didn't white wash it and I used chicken wire and clothespins for the hangers. Also added a wire hanger on the back.

 2 more to go...
