One of my New Years Goals for 2011 is to only have two projects going at the same time. For me it is easier when I get stumped on the one project to go the other project until I am stumped there.
....Make sense? Or is it justification?
Does ANYONE ELSE share the same point of view?Before you see the following picture I'll warn you that it is graphic and EMBARRASSING!
So if you don't want to feel embarrassed for me then go now!
I'm a VERY straightforward person and show it like it is!
So my question for you is....
do you have a room that always becomes the very last thing on your list? This was mine a couple of days ago. Still a work in progress.
|My work room became this way during the holidays with bits and pieces of projects all over the place.|
|I took this yucky window and wanted to do a window treatment to add some flair to this room.|
|Your finished project should look something like this. If you want to cover the nails then you could add pretty ribbon bows...OR just use upholstery tacks like thenester does.|
|To cover my bulletin boards I used Elmer's craft bond spray.|
Make sure the surface you are using is wipeable because it really is sticky!
You will also need a glue gun and fabric scissors.
|After spraying the back of the fabric I centered the bulletin board in place. |
I also turned it around and pulled an smoothed the fabric so it wouldn't be too wrinkly looking.
|Turn the sides in. Don't worry if it isn't pretty because no-one will see the back when it's on the wall.|
|Pull the corners in so you have somewhat of a sharp corner when you are finished.|
|After you have done all six boards in the package, arrange them the way you want them to look on your wall. These are perfect here above my desk!|
|Excuse the bad hair day! Using a level to make sure your first row of bulletin boards are straight, nail them in with a single nail. I nailed mine in the center top section.|
|Now I have a focal paint when I come into my work room! By making the window and desk area more beautiful I am determined to get every box in this room sorted! I've already started!|
|This already look much better!|
It is Monday so I am off to deep clean my house and get some work done on my new dresses!
