Happy Monday and Canada day too everyone!
I hope you enjoyed your weekend, we were busy Saturday and Sunday, so today we are relaxing by preparing healthy goodies in the kitchen. Because, I’ve had time to relax, I’ve had time to let my mind wonder and forgot about today’s post, so I am posting a little bit later than I usual.
Do you remember that last month I participated to a DITTO’s DIY party and I linked my gold home office accessories to the Go for the Gold challenge, it was a fun party to link up to and had the chance to see what other bloggers were working on. This month’s theme is Framed Fabric , so I framed this fun FREDRIKA fabric from IKEA that I purchased a long time ago around a cork board:
I have this small wasted corner in our dining area next to the patio doors that needed to be filled with something:
and for the longest time, I’ve been wanting to fill this corner with something other than just the wicker chair and my ‘good moms, happy kids’ wood sign:
this cork board was the perfect addition, it’s a nice, inexpensive and happy fabric and I’ve had it with me since last year:
I added these inexpensive frames to the cork board, they were white but I spray painted them in different colors so they could pop. I got six frames from the dollar store and used the rest of them for another project that I will be posting shortly:
Now, I’ve added pictures and magazine pages of projects that inspire me, even greeting cards and a small place to leave notes for hubby and myself. You might have also notice that there is a roll of scotch tape pinned to the cork board, it’s because I can never seem to find any when I need it and I wanted to have one roll available without having to go upstairs to my craft room. So now it’s there, visible and I use it to tape my notes :
I really love having this cork board in our dining area and because the fabric is not expensive I can change it with the seasons if I choose:
It’s very easy to switch fabrics, you just need to cut to size the fabric of your choice. Don’t forget to include about an inch and a half extra fabric on each side of the board:
next, you wrap it around the cork board and staple it to the back with a staple gun:
Now, here is a sneak peak of the other project I mentioned to you earlier, I will be sharing it with you later this week:
Wish you a beautiful week everyone!
Thanks again for stopping by!
Linking this week to these fun parties!
