Fabric covered memo board

I'm feeling much better now and looking forward to putting some finishing touches on our kitchen this week. I'm still waiting for that all important phone call letting us know our counter tops are ready! It should be sometime this week {so they say}!

Last week I was able to whip up a little memo board for the back of our pantry door. It's a great place to keep lists, menu's etc.

I started off with this bulletin board I picked up at a thrift shop for a couple bucks. I found the yellow chevron fabric {that I LOVE} at Hobby Lobby and used my 40% off coupon. I bought a yard of fabric for under $6.00 and only used half the fabric! 

I used my hot glue gun to attach the fabric and then used command strips to attach the board to the pantry door.

I love the pop of yellow on the black door! Plus it was super quick and easy to make!

Have a great day!
