More Fun With Scrabble

I got this mail/bulletin board thingy from Goodwill a couple of months ago.  Check out the cork... someone either had a lot of memos or they were really angry. 

I did my usual prime, black paint and distress.  Then added some Scrabble tiles and replaced the cork.  

I really enjoyed working on this one and I'm almost too happy that I found another one @ Goodwill this week.  I'm going to browse PB Teen for some inspiration and make that one over for Hannah's room.
