Part 3 – Beadboard for crafting

Let’s get crafty! There are so many ways to use beadboard in your craft projects. Here are just a few neat ways to incorporate beadboard in to your craft repertoire.

  1. Beadboard picture frames. With pre-primed and smoothly sanded sheets of 4’x8’ beadboard you can make several frames in multiple sizes.
  2. Beadboard planter gardens for your porch or patio. You can paint or stain them to match the exterior of your home.
  3. Chalkboard menu for your kitchen or daily planner for your office. With the lines already in the beadboard all you need to do is cut the 4’x8’ sheet so that you have seven lines, one for each day of the week. Paint with chalkboard paint and decorate to your match your décor.
  4. Decorative beadboard tray. These make nice backdrops for your seasonal table decorations. Plus, they keep all the decorations from marring the surface of your table.
  5.  Magnet board/message center. Cut out and paint a 12”x12” piece of beadboard to use as the backdrop. Pick up a roll of metal from your local home improvement store and cut in to 8”x8” squares, cover with scrapbook paper or thin fabric, and hot glue to the center of the 12”x12” beadboard. Add a decorative hanger or hook and you have a customized place to organize all those important reminders.
