If this was the only cheese board she had, I would have thought twice about it, but it is one of many teak trays...many!
Look...don't you see a button in there?
This is when I think she shed a tear...LOL
If you don't want to drill your cheese board or tray, you can use those office stickers and then paint over them as stencils. Peel away the stickers to reveal the button look.
Just one quick coat of paint, add a little hanger on the back when it dries and you're done.
Even cuter when it's threaded.

Wish I could replace the "O" in office with this button...hmmm where's my saw?
Here it is threaded on top of my calendar.

I think your mom would love it! I sure do!ReplyDelete
Wonderful idea! I picked up an oval cheese plate the other day to use for the letter "O".ReplyDelete
What a cute thing to do...I agree with Mary, you mom would love it!ReplyDelete
Well, if that isn't just the cutest!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!ReplyDelete
I'm now on the lookout for cheese trays!!!
Now put a jelly roll under the clear glass top, and you will be set!ReplyDelete
Very creative AGAIN Karen! Love it.ReplyDelete
So cute!! You have the coolest ideas!!! Off to the thrift stores.....ReplyDelete
Looks like I need to go out and buy a bunch of tools!! :) My screw driver set isn't cutting it! Keep up the creativity. We love seeing inside your mind. :0)ReplyDelete
Wow how awesome!!ReplyDelete
What a cool idea!! Love the jumbo button!ReplyDelete
So cute!! And fun!ReplyDelete
I love your ideas and have certainly started looking at things differently. This is fantastic!ReplyDelete
Super idea! I have some I was getting tired of so I'll turn them into buttons.ReplyDelete
That is just the cutest darn thing!!!! She would love it!ReplyDelete
I think that is just a really cute idea :)ReplyDelete
I'm a new follower and VERY intrigued about your office and sewing room. I'm in the process of organizing our office in a way that I can do my sewing/crafting as well. That being said, I'd love to see a "tour" if you will to get a few storage ideas. I want a functional room, but it also has to be pretty. :)ReplyDelete
Aren't you clever!ReplyDelete
I just love your ideas. This one just turned out great - now I am off to the second hand store to find a cheese tray!ReplyDelete
Love it, what a wonderful idea.ReplyDelete
Really Cute! I bet your mom would love it!!!ReplyDelete
Okay this is one that I never would have thought of but I LOVE IT!ReplyDelete
Another item repurposed with a great craft idea. You are so creative! I peeked at your craft room to see where I can only guess you spend most of your time ...love, love, LOVE it. Your blog is in my bookmarks now for sure.ReplyDelete
That is just way too cute!! I love seeing what you come up with!!ReplyDelete
Oh my goodness!! This is SOOO adorable! I must make one!ReplyDelete
This is absolutely darling! Really, I don't think your mom would have minded. If you get a chance tomorrow, I'd love for you to link this up to my Not "Baaad" (get it?) linky party :)ReplyDelete
This is SO cute! Thank you so much for sharing!ReplyDelete
i absolutely love this - definitely will be on the lookout for another cheese tray!!ReplyDelete
This is really a great idea! I would have a hard time drilling into a teak board, but because I can see how it is such a wonderful piece, I think now I can cut into just about anything, except maybe old lace dresses, that would still be hard to do :)ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing!
What a great idea!!! I love it!!!ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing,
Cute! I love a good button!ReplyDelete
I love this, and since I have just started working on my craftroom, it will be perfect!! Thanks for sharing! SueReplyDelete
adorable! i love jumbo replicas! sooooo soooo cute! and totally great eye for seeing what could be!ReplyDelete
Very clever upcylcing, mum would be pleased I am sure.....ReplyDelete
Button, button, who's got the button? YOU DO..That is adorable. I'm sure your Mom would pin a button on you for your creativity..;>)ReplyDelete
Such a cute idea. Those wooden boards are so cheap too, like 1 euro (here in Germany at least) so this is a totally affordable craft. Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
Karen, tienes una imaginación fantástica!!!!! Despues del susto de tu madre al ver los agujeros quedaría feliz con el resultado final. Un besoReplyDelete
How cute, makes me want to go find a round board and make one for my sewing room!!! As always your ideas astound me!! I still want that field trip to the Hardware store with you!!ReplyDelete

That is so cute! How do you think of these things? Another question...Is the on-line baby shower still on?ReplyDelete
Now I have to look for cheese boards at the flea market..LOL
LOVE it! Very clever and oh so cute!ReplyDelete
I just shared your great idea with my followers, I know they'll love it too!
I absolutely Love this idea and I believe your Mom would too!!! It is so clever and cute!!! I especially like it with the "button" push pins near by. :)ReplyDelete
Oh what vision you have. It would never occur to me. Love it.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing and inspiring.
Hi, I'm new to Blogs and still trying to figure out where to even comment on peoples Blogs. I ran my curser over a red line that talked about how many people left a comment, and up came this window. When you let people know if they are "no Comment" where will it show up? At the bottom of this screen the O marked is "Dian (Google Account)" below that is my Email account. I'm leaving the Google marked but this is my E-mail Dianlee@hughes.netReplyDelete
That is so clever! I LOVE it!ReplyDelete
Goodness this is adorable, Karen! What a clever idea. Amazing!ReplyDelete
This is soo stinking cute! Way to think outside the box with a cheese plate!ReplyDelete
Oh, I love it! I'm a big fan of buttons, and this is really cute.ReplyDelete
What an excellent idea! Great job!!!ReplyDelete
I am out today to find me some cheese trays...your MUMM no doubt is over the top proud of you..the cheese certainly did not fall off your cracker lolReplyDelete
Okay, my sister just bought these at JoAnn's but we don't have them at our JoAnn's so because of you I can make my own. Thanks so much for sharing this fun idea.ReplyDelete
That's really cute. I see a lot of those covered cheese trays at GW and SA and have passed them by but I think they'd even look cute painted in brights or pastels for a baby's room!ReplyDelete
This is so so so cute! I want some for my house! I am featuring this at somedaycrafts.blogspot.com. Grab my "featured' button.ReplyDelete
I absolutely love this idea!! Bookmarked and cheeseboard purchase is imminent!! xReplyDelete
She is definitely smiling from above. My mother was a wonderful seamstress also. I'll bet she is chatting with your mother now and would have loved some big buttons in her sewing room!ReplyDelete
This is an awesome idea! I am so going to copy it. :) I am a new follower, found your at Someday Crafts.ReplyDelete

Testing this out for comments with reply...ReplyDelete
Well that is just genius, and if I ever find a cheesboard like that lying around anywhere I am going to make a giant button too! I love it!ReplyDelete
This is so cute! Love the fabric "thread".ReplyDelete
Very clever... I may have to steal this idea for my sewing room. Oh so cute! Thanks for sharingReplyDelete
So clever! I wish my mind worked like that. :-)ReplyDelete
Love this can't wait to try this. I'm heading to my local thrift store now.ReplyDelete
I am in love with your big ole button! What a cleaver idea. And I have one of those just sitting there. I think it needs to be a button now. Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
My sewing/craft area definitely needs a giant button on the wall! Thanks for the tutorial!ReplyDelete

Very creative. Imagination has a big role to have a unique designs. This a simple thing to do and it will not take anybody a hard time.ReplyDelete
It's fabulous, and now I want one ofr my studio!ReplyDelete

This is such a cute idea, love it!ReplyDelete
This is on my "must make"list. How perfect for a sewing room.
Great job! That decor is really creative. Very inspirational! I hope I could read more of your post about home decor ideas.ReplyDelete
This is too adorable! I just have to make one! I am in the process of organizing and decorating my teeny tiny little sewing/craft area, and this will be just the touch it needs! Have to hit up the yard sales now for an unwanted cheese board!ReplyDelete
Clever and love this, thanks, if I ever get my sewing room done your button will be there! Now for the hunt! Newest follower!ReplyDelete
I was so excited when I found one of these the other day, and it didn't have the glass top to it, so it was extra cheap! Now to get it done like you did yours.ReplyDelete
I love this idea! I ran right out and bought the supplies to make it, but I've been afraid the drill it! I like the sticker idea. I guess I just gotta bite the bullet and do it, right?ReplyDelete
great idea!Great blog!:))ReplyDelete
