I've wanted to make Littlest Princess a fabric covered bulletin board for awhile so when I spotted an old bulletin board in my friend, Jessica's, trash pile, I begged her for it.
(At least I think she was planning on throwing it away. If not, the begging worked. Ha Ha! Thanks Jess!)
I brought it home and looked through my sewing scraps. I had some batting from a pillow I made awhile ago and leftover fabric to match the "It's Not Perfect, But Who Cares" valance I made. The problem was I didn't have enough fabric to cover the whole thing.
I remembered this Nesting Place blog post, so I ripped up an old sundress that didn't fit the girls anymore and VOILA I suddenly had enough fabric.
Here's proof that I'm cured of perfectionism:
I just put the batting across the bulletin board and hot glued it down in a few places. Then I stretched the fabric across and stapled it in the back with a staple gun.
Didn't cost me a thing.
Got to be creative.
Littlest Princess is happy.
Moral of the Story: Check through your friends' trash. You never know what treasures they may be throwing away. Hee Hee.
Just kidding...kind of... : )
I'll tell you about my next freebie decorating project when I finish.
Inspire me with your own freebie projects in the comments section, please. : )
Please remember to pray for Noelle while she is in surgery today.
