I bought this little table at a local thrift store ("Urban Renewals"). It wasn't bad looking when I bought it, although there were a lot of stains on the wood. I tried a couple of different things with it (even painting it yellow!) but decided this cute, tray look was the best. It still needs another coat of mod podge (to cat-proof it) but here is the general idea!

1 Can White Paint
8 Notecards
Mod Podge (Gloss)

Small Project

I found this card at Brookline Booksmith. Using glue, a little foam board, a City Year magnet, and a clock set from A.C.Moore I turned it into a little clock for our fridge. The only drawback is that the lazy dog makes me want to stay in bed all day.

1 Letterpress Card
1 Clock Set
1 Heavy-duty magnet
1 Altoids Tin (conceals clock back and allows you to attach magnet)
AA batteries
Foam Board
