Spare Room Project – Bulletin Board + Cost Breakdown

I’m so glad to have the spare room done.  As I mentioned yesterday I really wanted a room where I could craft and be inspired or take a quiet moment to read or maybe a little catnap :-).  It also had to be a place where if needed, someone could sleep. I’ve just been walking in there and standing and grinning.  It’s a good feeling to have a vision and then accomplish it.

I wanted to give ya the scoop on one of the projects that you saw in the room.  Saturday night puppy Divot woke me up at 1:30 a.m.  Then I couldn’t go back to sleep.  After I tossed and turned, hate that by the way, I decided I would just decorate an old bulletin board.  I know! 1:30 in the morning and I’m doing what?

I guarantee you could do this and it doesn’t have to be the middle of the night.  I also will say right up front this is not the fanciest job and I’m sure I didn’t do it the way you’re supposed to.  But at 1:30 in the morning anything looks good and then I was too tired to change it and now its kind of grown on me.

What you need: bulletin board, scrapbook paper, ribbon, pushpins. Fit the paper onto the board.  I didn’t even cut it. Then take your ribbon and outline the 4 sides and then start laying the ribbon diagonally, creating crisscrosses. I ran out of turquoise ribbon so I just used a different color. Use pushpins to hold ribbon in place.
