Great Find At Goodwill

I found this frame at Goodwill the other day for only $5.99. I've been looking for a frame for awhile now, and was thrilled to see this at a reasonable price.

I got online and saw some great ideas for corkboards using material and here they are.

I especially like this one with the white frame and brown and white material

This one is using cork in a traditional way. O.K., but kind of boring,

This one really speaks to me. I love the big stencils.

This one is nice with the ribbons,

I really need to figure out where and for what I would use the frame for first, and that will help me decide what to do with it. Puttin on my thinking cap.

Oh my word, what a great idea!!! You must post a picture so I can get an even better idea. I'm going to be on the lookout for a big frame also...but where in the world would I put it??? I'll need to start looking for a spot also!

Very great idea! I have been wanting to do something like this. I guess this gives me a little motivation to get with it!
