Project #1.....Framed Tack Board

This by far way the easiest project I have ever done, and I totally love the finished product!! I let Taylor pick the fabric, so we went with the Michael Miller Lolli Dot. Oh how I love Michael Miller!! By far one of my favs!! So I drag the kids with me to the D.I. to find an old frame and some cork board. It was by far the cheapest way to do it....I paid $3.00 for the frame which was the ugliest gold color before I spray painted it white, and $4.00 for a 36x36 cork board. The project actually only used half a yard of fabric for me. Honestly the hardest part is stapling the fabric while keeping it tight enough to lay totally flat. That was probably due to the oval shape of my frame. As for the overall project.....I give it 5 out of 5 stars!! Totally worth the whole hour I spent on it including my shopping.

PROJECT #2 WILL BE POSTED BY FEBRUARY 27th!!

  3. I love that! Taylor did a great job picking out that fabric! I could use something like that by my bed. I have all the (bigger) notes that Ethan has made me taped to the side of my nightstand. I'm running out of room. I love this!!!
