Incoming mail...Home office makeover

I'm getting a few things done. I completed another one of the need to's today. This is where our incoming mail goes...
It hangs on the left wall. If you look at this picture you can see it there...
Well now that I am fixing up around this area, I needed to get rid of the moose and tree and try to match my new decor. I decided to remove the metal moose and tree. It was rather easy they just pulled right off..
Since I am trying to bring red over to this "office" I thought I would paint it red. I watered the paint down alot and brushed it on.
This is what it looks like...
Still a little boring... It needs something on the front. Remember the fabric from this project...
I cut a little section of flowers out...
Dug out the Mod Podge, and glued it to the front...
When it dried the edges were a little frayed or ragged so I just went around the edge with a black paint marker. It kinda cleaned the edge up a little.
I also spray painted the brown metal bands on it black, but forgot to take pics of that. So here is what it looks like back in its place next to the new bulletin board...

Things are already looking better with just these two changes. But I've got more much more to do.
Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Great job! That was a great idea to use the fabric to make it coordinate.

  2. Ooh smart, Brooke. This is going to be an awesome little nook!

  3. Wow I love that! how pretty it looks with the matching board next to it! Great idea too, maybe I'll stop by Michaels this weekend and pick up stuff to make a mail in box, our mail usually just gets thrown on the desk. Happy New Friend Friday!

  4. Looks great! I'm impressed with the mod podge with the fabric!
