With this board I hand stenciled the design on the back of the bag, which had no printing on it.  I painted an old window black and put the cork board in it.
This board came from the front of the coffee bean bag and I left the graphics as is.  The frame came off of a large recycled cork board that I cut to size and painted black.
This message board came from the back of a bag also but already had the blue stripe running through it.  I hand stenciled it before I glued it on to the cork board.  It is mounted in a old window.

These message boards were made from coffee bean bags. I cut them apart and then startched and ironed them (a very stinky process).  I then glued each bag to recycled cork board and mounted them in frames.

FYI - You can place your link to your Etsy store under the "Pattern or design used:". List it as Repurposed Antiques and place link in the space provided below it. It will become clickable then. Also - a suggestion for your photos on this site would be to focus closer on the project with less wall showing. You'll get many more views that way. :)

Glad you're posting! Can't wait to see more.
