Pin Board Frame with Printable {Porch Projects}

I’ve had this wooden plaque from AC Moore hanging out in my craft closet for months on end.  So, I carted it down to Savannah, along with my chalk paint and waxes to finally make use of it.  When I saw a board painted with “Today I’ll be Happier than a Bird with a French Fry” in Seaside Sisters down at Tybee, I knew then and there that it was the perfect contender for my plaque and would make a fantastic addition to the new porch!

I bought the board with a 40% off coupon too long ago to remember how much I paid, but I am certain this whole project cost me under $10.

Happy crafting, y’all!
