So I got my hands on a large noticeboard for a mere £1
It wasn't pretty
And it had paint stains on the frame
So I de-constructed it and painted the frame
Got some cheap blue fabric that I liked
Stretched it over and stapled it on at the back
Then I swiftly reassembled it with the help of a little No More Nails
I say de-constructed and reassembled, the truth is more ripped it apart with
hubby's help and a lot of
swearing sweating as well as a few tools
and it actually took me ages to getting around to putting it back together.
Other than that it was a piece of cake!
Bigger and better suited for all the bits of paper passing through here
it replaced the small one that I adapted for the boys room.
I look at it now and think it would have been better with ribbons across like this,
but I'll be darned if I take it apart again as I don't really fancy a fight with
No More Nails that I suspect I'd lose.
