A New Shadow Box

I bought this magnetic dart board at Goodwill a few weeks ago for $.80. I thought it would make a great shadow box. First, I removed the dart board from the frame and painted it with some mis-tinted, semi-gloss paint that I got from Lowes for $2.00.


After I finished painting the box I had my husband cut a piece of bead board we had left over from another project.  I glued the bead board to the box with gorilla glue. 


I then hot glued some twine around the border of the frame to trim out the edges of the beadboard.


I then used gorilla glue to glue the star fish to the beadboard.  I am going to hang it up in my guest bathroom.  You can buy the picture hangers at any hardware store.  I loved how it turned out!
