Last Project of 2010

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!

I thought I would squeeze in one more project before the end of the year.  One of my new year's resolutions is to be more organized (it always makes my list) so I decided to make a new memo board to hang in my kitchen (by the door to the garage) to hold notes, coupons, keys, etc.

This project really had me digging through my junk stash.

I took this old cabinet door (the door shows some age with no hardware and numerous drill holes).
I added a vintage doorknob plate.
Some old hinges.
Some vintage hooks.

An antique strike plate (which I used as a label holder).
And finally, six McCaskey Register Co. receipt holders (I had three of these in my stash of "stuff" and found three more this week at an antique store).  I also added number stickers above each of the holders.
And here is the finished memo board (in my dining area to get a picture in good light).
And hanging on the wall holding our keys, some coupons, gift cards, photos and the dog's leash (I still need to conceal the screws holding the memo board with some paint).
I don't know what I like better.....the finished project or the fact that I was able to use some of the random hardware that I had stashed away in my studio.

That's a wrap on 2010.
A great big thanks to all of you for your support this past year.  I have really enjoyed this year of blogging and getting to know so many of you.  I look forward to more of the same in 2011!
Have a safe and happy New Year!

  22. Yet another great project Jane! I think it looks great, and you certainly can't beat it's function. I'm making three message centers from cabinet doors for friends this week, and I'd love to have some old hardware for mine. Alas, I'll use what I have.

    I have enjoyed your blog so much this year, and I glad I got to know you a bit better.

    I hope that 2011 blesses you and hubby with good news on the health front. Keeping yall in my prayers.

    Happy New Year my friend!

  40. Oh my whiskers! You've got "her" drooling all over the keyboard! Seriously! What fun - to do and to look at, not to mention using! With incentive like that who could possibly want to not be organized?!?! "She" has a couple of those receipt thingy's in "her" stash...maybe I'll get "her" to make me one of those boards. I'd put coupons on mine for anchovy pizzas and catsnacks. And a dog leash too! Although I'd be using it on "her" ;) Thanks for sharing this great project!

    Wishing you and all those who mean the world to you a wonderful new year - 2011!

    Purrs!
