My bulletin board that I made here just didn’t go with my room colors anymore, so I decided to remodel it tonight. I took the corkboard out of the frame and pried off the staples holding the fabric on the backside. The frame was made by my grandfather for my mom many years ago. I love how simple and plain it is.
And then I got busy stapling on my new fabric…with my electric staple gun. It took all of 10 minutes to remove and then replace the fabric.
and I think it looks good enough to just be art in my room! But I still needed/wanted a bulletin board. So….
I started adding my little doo dads that only mean something to me…
the sea shell I picked up in North Carolina the first time I saw the ocean when I was 23 years old, the pine cone that a friend put in my hand when I was going through a rough time in nursing school thirty some years ago.
the Beanie Baby Ladybug that my son gave me from his Happy Meal because he knew how much I loved ladybugs (even though he collected Beanie Babies) and the painted Easter egg that a patient gave me probably 15 years ago.
Here is the finished adorned product! My favorite things, my favorite sayings and of course my calendar!
And how cute is this fabric with the leaves and birds? I found it at JoAnn’s for 50% off!
I am linking to these great parties!
