I've been needing some kind of memo board in my kitchen for some time now, but I didn't just want to throw one of those plain white dry erase boards on the wall. I wanted something to match my kitchen. I purchased some pretty green paisley fabric on clearance a while back not exactly sure what I wanted to do with it at the time, but when I saw this project, I knew that it would work great for this. I cannot claim this idea as my own. I got the idea from the blog Make It and Love It. Follow her tutorial here. When you need to have something functional, why not try to make it as pretty as possible at the same time?
