Bulletin Board Makeover

I recently found this Ikea metal bulletin board at a garage sale for $3 complete with 6 magnets.
It was a little plain so I decided to dress it up a little so my daughter could use it in her house.
I cleaned it up with a scouring pad,  and used some paper cake tray doilies as masks and spray painted black over-top of the masks.  I removed the masks (very carefully) and, voila, you have a permanent design on the bulletin board.
Easy peazy and it looks great hanging in my daughter's house.
