Jason one day decided that he had had it with the ugly thing we hung on our wall to hold our keys and such. He took it down and decided he was going to redo it.
So it started out looking like this.Then he took the sander to it.He even let the boys help him paint it.Then we distressed the edges, sprayed a coat of polyurethane on it and hung it up. Ta Da! I love it. I think it really turned out great and matches the rest of our "decor" a little bit better.
