    Oh I love this! It would also be great in a kitchen or hallway as a reminder board.

    Hi,
    I love your filigree placecard board! It’s just perfect for my daughter’s wedding which is a vintage theme. How big are the individual filigrees that you used for each placecard. I found the site you suggested, but I wasn’t sure of what size filigree to get.

    Thank you,
    Karen

    There are no instructions as to how you actually painted the ceiling tile memo board. It is beautiful but it would be nice if you shared how you accomplished the finished project. Thanks

      They weren’t painted, the patina you see is because the ceiling tiles were salvaged!
