Office Decorating Update - Button Magnets

I have been slowly adding more repurposed vintage items to my office at work. First I created my non-corporate nameplate using Scrabble tiles and an old ruler. Then I repurposed a painter's dropcloth as a backdrop to my cubicle walls and added rosette clips here. And then I repurposed a vintage doll suitcase as my inbox.

Recently I started using a vintage metal child's chalkboard desk as a bulletin board in my office. Here is what it looked like originally. I am using just the desktop part as the magntic board but it needed some special magnets.

I searched through my button stash and used almost all of the aqua buttons for this project. I glued them into stacks of either two or three button high and then onto magnets. I can also use them for the office Bingo game.
This project was so simple and it just brightens up my office wall.
