Hi everyone, how is your week going?
Today I thought I'd share with you one of my recent projects for my shop, a fabric covered cork board.
I remember as a young girl having a cork board in my room. A plain ordinary ol' cork board. Well, they have come a long way since then! Pin boards, inspiration boards, memo boards, whatever you call them, cork boards no longer have to be boring!
Pretty frames and fabric covered boards seem to be all the rage now, so I thought I'd try my hand at making one!
I wish I had taken the time to snap a before shot of this oval frame (geez, how often have I said that?!)
It's made by Homco, and began as a very dated peachy color (hello 1980!), and held an equally dated "cutesy country" print, ugh!!
I couldn't paint that frame fast enough with my favorite creamy white!
I picked up a roll of cork at Michel's, cut it to fit the opening (after I removed the glass and ugly print, of course!) and covered it in this pretty floral cotton pansy print fabric that I just happened to have on hand.
I just love pansies, they are one of my favorite flowers, and I thought the colors of this fabric were so pretty!
So there you have it, my version of a fabric covered inspiration board!!
I couldn't resist sharing a few photos of Katie I snapped last week. She loves finding spots of sun to lay in, and here she is working on her tan in our bedroom!
Sure getting sleepy!
"I'm too tired for any more pictures, Mom!"
Have a great day, can't wait to see what you all have been up to!
