I managed to finish the inspiration board for my “work space” that I’m creating in my bedroom… Yesterday I asked where I could go to have cork board cut to size not realizing that I could go to my garage!
Last year, my SIL gave me this bulletin board
Hoping that it would fit into the frame, I brought it up to my bedroom last night. It was larger than the frame (which was better than being smaller) so all I had to was figure out a way to cut it down.
Good thing I found this at Goodwill months ago
Have you guys noticed a pattern here? I ‘m working with things that are either free or has come from Goodwill!
Once removing the frame from the bulletin board
and prying off the frame, I figured out how to cut it to size for the frame
To be honest, I seriously just cut this thing with my best guess in the measurements… Did I mention that I was doing this at 11pm?
After cutting the board, I stapled it to the frame
And if it wasn’t for my sloppy cutting job, it would have been fine as is…especially with a white painted frame! But because I knew I was covering the board, the flaws didn’t bother me. Since I was using fabric, I opted to use nailheads to hold it in place. I also did it this way just incase I wanted to change out the fabric one day.
Here i t is all finished and hung on the wall
I’ve already started pinning things on it!
I’m seriously loving purple at the moment!
I am excited about the way it turned out! Now I really need to get started on that table. But, that won’t start until next week.
So, what do you guys think? Love it or hate it?!
