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.
That be it. Pretty simple!
