    Great idea! Just what I need for the new school year. I can put in all the notes and notices from my daughters school.

    What a great idea! You could even use the ones with paintings on the other side that you didn’t want to look at anymore! xo Diana

    Cathe, your creativity is boundless! I absolutely love this idea and I’m kicking myself for not bringing home a couple of unframed canvases I considered at my local Goodwill last week. Next time I won’t hesitate!

    Hi Cathe-

    These are just perfect! I love them – so functional, but what I love even more is how you styled them. You are so talented!

    My best- Diane

    Oh my god, this is so super gorgeous! I love working with canvases and have this burlap lying around, waiting to be used. What a great idea!

    Oh stop already! Genius idea. Wow. Only thing is that I would never accumulate such pretty things…mine would be filled with Michael’s 40% off coupons and wet naps and half empty bottles of hand lotion…Cause I’m, glamorous like that.

    You go girl!

    A great way to reuse a canvas if it is free but you hate the art on the front!

  15. #17 - Linda Kinnaman says:

    This is the nicest example of this idea I have seen. It looks rugged, yet so homey as well.

    OMG…you know I’m loving these! And if memory serves me correctly, I probably have all the supplies down in the supply closet! And heck, my local JoAnn’s has about 5 different colors of burlap!!

  20. Oh my gosh I love these! Now where do I need some that is the question of the day!

    Love! What more can I say? I have everything I need to get started and ORGANIZE is my word or the year. Thanks for another clever idea.

    Totally love this … great job of repurposing

  26. #27 - Mary Ann Potter says:

    A neat idea, Cathe. They also make interesting frames when they’re turned this way, and the thicker ones make cool shadow boxes!

  27. #28 - kristi says:

    Great idea Cathe. My life as a painter also never materialized so I have some of my “masterpieces” laying around! Thank you for always sharing such cool ideas!

    What a great idea! You could even use a canvas that you worked on and it didn’t turn out, becuz the front of the canvas is against the wall. I really enjoy your posts!
