There are these really large cool doors in my studio that divide the living space from the kitchenette.
What a perfect place for an inspiration board, but it’s so large I knew I’d never find a pre-made one.
“Oh, Rhett…whatevuh will ah do?”
“Frankly, my dear, I think this calls for a little DIY.”
Sorry…sometimes I go off on little mental field trips.
So I went to Target and got a foam project board (the kind with flaps). I cut the flaps off with an exacto knife.
Then I duct taped the two flaps together and then duct taped that to the main board. Ya follow? I wrapped it around a couple of times so that it would be sturdy.
Next I covered the board with batting. 2-3 layers…can’t remember exactly.
They I went over the batting with some great linen fabric that I found at Hancock fabrics during their half-price week.
This is before I ironed it. 🙂
I used a staple gun to staple both the batting and the fabric pulling it tightly. Here’s a little tip for ya…whenever covering something with fabric be it a seat cushion or something else…always go side staple/side staple then top staple/bottom staple OR top staple/ bottom staple then side staple/side staple. The point is to not go side then top or side then bottom or your fabric will get all caterwonked.
Next I placed those new super-duper strong velcro strips all down the back. I went ahead and put both pieces together without pulling the sticky off of the top piece. I pushed them together really hard and then peeled the stickies and stuck the board to the door.
Then I added some nail head tacks that I found at JoAnn’s around the perimeter to finish it off.
I’ve just begun to add inspirational bits and pieces to the board but it’s not finished.
I’ll think about that tomorrow.
Aftuh all… tuhmorrow is anothuh day.
