Mad For Plaid

I love finding wool, plaid blankets at thrift stores and garage sales, but they are rare in these parts.  So when I saw this one full of holes at thrift store I snatched it up, for 50 cents!  I knew there was enough of it without holes that I could use it for a few projects.

And one of those ideas was a bulletin board perfect for a lodge look or a man's office (yes, my bulletin board obsession continues).  I started with this frame--the 1978 puppy poster in it now hangs in my daughter's room.

Painted and distressed the frame,

And covered a piece of bulletin board cut to size with the blanket.  Cozy, with a purpose!
