We have a thing for buttons, but we've never been very good at organizing or actually wearing most of them. Normally, we'll stick one or two on a favorite bag or jacket and then tuck the rest of our pins away in a drawer, out of sight -- and therefore -- out of mind. Wanting to keep track of all the buttons we own, we came up with this easy and decorative way to consolidate all them so that we can give them all a chance to shine, whether we end up wearing them or not.
We bought this small framed bulletin board at the Goodwill for a couple of bucks. We didn't like the light wood color of the frame, so we sanded it down and painted it white.
Then we attached all of our buttons on the board, and voila!, a very cheap and simple solution to our dilemma. Hang the board in your bedroom or bathroom as a handy reminder to wear your buttons. Or, for those of you who don't care to keep the bulletin board in public view, hang it on a wall inside of your closet.
