Scrabble Tile Magnet Frame

I found this great metal and wood stand at the DI (a local thrift store) for $1.00
I painted the wood stand, then I mod podged scrapbook paper right to the metal board and let it all dry really well.  Then I took some of my scrabble pieces from my stash and I glued the word FAMILY to the front.  For the word OUR I glued magnets to the back of the scrabble pieces so I could use them to hold the picture on the board.
This way I can change the picture simply by moving the word OUR.
