Vintage crib pegboard.
Old game boards with a new purpose.
Old school desk with a decoupage top.  
A book pegboard.

A wall of creativity.  Refurbish old books, wagon with no wheels, game boards and crib panel. What do you do with old books that have been damaged inside but still have a very cute cover?  Make a an interchangeable wall border for your child's room, a library or a classroom. I use old book pages from damaged books for decoupaging and I have a whole stack of covers that I just couldn't bring myself to throw away.  I am so glad I kept them because they make a very inexpensive and attractive wall border.  A border you can change as your child grows and no need to scrub to remove the old border.  I just took a 1" x 6" board, glued and used small nails to secure the books on the front and attached picture hangers on the back.

I'm out scouring FM and GS for vintage type toys to put up on a shelf and now the border will fit right in. Thank you again for your creativity. LuAnn Posted: 4:57 am on September 25th
