Anyone else have a hard time adjusting to the time change this weekend? I am dragging this morning! Remind me why we are still doing this?
Anyways…despite the slow start this morning, we made some great progress on our HUGE remodeling project and we are getting so close to being FINISHED! Unfortunately all the little things take a lot of time and patience to finish up. But we are getting so close.
Today I wanted to share with you a little bulletin board that I got up in my new office. It has been so nice to have everything in one spot, right where I need it. I wanted a spot to be able to display some fun memories and also tack up some inspiration.
I simply found frame that I liked that was on sale (50% off) at Hobby Lobby and painted it white and then distressed with sand paper. Then I found some cork board out of an old thrift store frame and cut it down to the right size.
I painted the cork board white since I didn’t want it to look like cork board. All I did was roll the cork board with my white paint that I used to paint the frame with. It took 3 coats to get it to the whiteness that I wanted.
Then I made a simple CREATE banner. For some reason I couldn’t get the pattern correct with the squares and triangles. Ha ha! I must have been tired or something. But I actually like that there is NO pattern to the banner. I must admit that normally I would automatically go for the square-triangle-square-triangle pattern as I am a very traditional and uniform person. When I was a kid I would ALWAYS color the barn red! But I like that it is a bit off. Seems to be a bit more “creative” that way.
Anyways…I am waiting to finish up a couple of more things in the office before I reveal the whole thing to you. I have to paint the ceiling and a few other small things before it can finally get checked off of the list!
