A Fun Find and a Simple Bingo Project...

If you've been reading my blog for awhile, 
you might know that I love vintage Bingo goodies!

I have found that wood cassette and disc racks are perfect for storage in my studio...

So...when I found this CD/DVD rack at the thrift store last week...
I knew it would go home with me.

The numbers are fun...

So I decided to give it a simple little makeover.  A coat of gray paint for the exterior gave it a nice look and I wanted to decorate the front a little, too.  I went onto the PicMonkey website and used their design feature to make a pattern...
it's my go-to site for making easy graphics.

I used a simple transfer technique ~  rubbing the back of the paper with a soft pencil, then tracing over the letters on the front to transfer the pattern...

I used a permanent marker to color in the letters in a rustic fashion, and added a whimsical dot to the "I"...a bingo call number! 
 I love how it looks with colorful bingo cards...

Fun, isn't it?  These racks are so great for organizing so many different things!

  2. Cute ideas! The one with the numbers is for bills or mail. Good repurpose! And the cassette repurpose is a great idea--those are cheap at the thrifts!

  5. What a great idea, and I don't think I would of thought of it. When I was reading this I thought it would be great to use to hold my circular knitting needles. Now I'm on the lookout for one.

  14. Linda I love how this turned out! The numbers on the rack was a great bonus! I had no idea you could get graphics from Picmonkey. I have a small collection of bingo cards. Would love to find something similar!

    1. They have a design feature and you can start with a blank canvas and make your own pieces.

  15. What clever storage pieces you've created, Linda! Thanks for the tip on where to find fonts to print. We had a greeting card program on our old computer, but when we replaced the computer, unfortunately the program wasn't compatible. The little dog cutting board is adorable!
