I love finding wool, plaid blankets at thrift stores and garage sales, but they are rare in these parts. So when I saw this one full of holes at thrift store I snatched it up, for 50 cents! I knew there was enough of it without holes that I could use it for a few projects.
And one of those ideas was a bulletin board perfect for a lodge look or a man's office (yes, my bulletin board obsession continues). I started with this frame--the 1978 puppy poster in it now hangs in my daughter's room.
Painted and distressed the frame,
And covered a piece of bulletin board cut to size with the blanket. Cozy, with a purpose!
