I bought a notice board so that I could try to make plans for each month for craft projects and blog posts. I don’t know about anyone else but this girl could always do with being a bit more organised. I put it on the wall and straight away I felt like it was a bit boring. So I got to work straight away with my plans to make it a bit more interesting, after all, a boring old notice board isn’t going to inspire you to come up with wonderful craft and blog ideas.
I got some material from IKEA in black and off-white. I’m kind of obsessed with black at white at the minute. I covered the noticed board with the material and pinned it into place. I then used a craft knife to cut the material around the inside of the frame of notice board. I wasn’t too worried about it turning out perfect, but it worked pretty well. Next I used superglue to stick the material to the board. It didn’t really matter if the glue showed through because of the design on the material but if you were using a block colour you might need to test the glue out first.
I liked it at that point but I still felt there was something missing so I decided to paint the wood my other favourite colour right now – yellow. I used a sponge and yellow ceramic paint. I had lots of it left over, but that’s a different story for another day. I’m delighted with how it turned out. It’s yellow but you can still see the wood grain through the paint.
I definitely think it’s going to help to inspire me to come up with great craft ideas. It also brightens up my craft room which is an added bonus. How do you keep track of lists and plans?
