Pin it up!

Hey guys! I'm back again! Ryan has been working night shift so I'm been up all night cleaning and moving things around the house! I slept so late today but wanted to go to town to go to a couple thrit stores. I've been wanting to do this for sometime now but with 3 boards! I found one so far so I may go pick up 2 more from HL this week! I LOVE it! I have called it my "inspiration board!"

Here, I will show you how to make your own cute, covered inspiration board or reminder board:)

First things first. Supplies you'll need! You will need some sorta pin it board whether it be from a thrift store or from HL or Target. Most stores carry them and they come in all shapes and sizes! You will also need a staple gun, scissors and possibly a hammer...I'll tell you why in a little bit.

Here's my thrift store board on my fabric. Getting my measurements right to cut it to size.

Here's my cute fabric from JoAnne's! I got it for 30% off today with their weekly promotional sale so it only cost me about $12.00 for 2 full yards!

Is she not the cutest thing you've ever seen! I would love to go ahead and go get two more to put on both sides of this one to fill up a larger wall! I am always cutting out pictures from magazines and love looking at pictures of my family and friends:)

This is a laundry basket organizer I bought at a yardsale and I'm actually using it to put all my fabric in. Have I mentioned before how much I hate am not feeling this front room. I think it's because I never really take the time to do it. I call it our "left over" room because it gets all the left over furniture and there's no details or anything of the sorts in this room.

*MAYBE* hubby won't hate me and let me do the whole room! What do y'all think?!


  1. I have been following your blog for a little while now, ever since I saw a post for it on some sort of Minot facebook page. And when I was reading this one I just kept thinking that the fabric you used on that board looked really familiar, then I realized that it is because I cut it for you at my work, Joanns! Haha! Small word! I wish I had known it was you at the time! I love all of your work!

  2. Hi! That is so funny! Well next time you will have to say hello! :) Keep spreading the word about my blog!
