A Series of Smalls ~ Part 1

In the past few months I have picked up a few smallish items that I thought could use a little freshening up. There was nothing really wrong with them aside from being dated, ugly, and dusty. There is a lot of satisfaction that comes from working on small pieces as they generally can come together quickly and are fun to do.

{For the Birds Bulletin Board}


This was just an old picture frame with whatever it had housed previously removed. It had the metallic trim and a bit of a dated look, but was solid and interesting.

I see that my carpet could have used a vacuum before I took this picture, but you take the good with the bad here...

Anyway, I had painted it white a few weeks ago and had been thinking about what to do with it and came up with the idea of a bulletin board. They are generally so plain and utilitarian looking. It is nice to make something useful a little bit more interesting. I had picked up some really fun graphic fabric from Ikea for another project that I had changed my mind about using but it seemed so perfect for this makeover. A little bit of distressing and some cork and you wouldn't recognize it!

It is a decent size for a bulletin board, plus I think the graphic is nice enough on its own so you don't feel you have to fill it up.
