I am just gathering things now (I feel like a momma hen, nesting). I hope to work on it over this three day weekend. I have so many places that need attention, so many ideas and not enough time and money - ha.
This was an old picture that got knocked off the wall. The frame was gold and dated, and the glass broke. I forgot to take pictures of the old bulletin board and how I got the cork off, sorry. I did just scrape the cork off with an off-set spreader. I glued the cork down and covered it with fabric.
I sprayed it olive green first then a light mist of white I think I like the color.
Can you believe I got this fabric at Wal Mart? I think I have enough to made a cute pillow too. I also rubbed a little stain on it to bring out the brown in the print -- I really liked it then.
I have a true love for jars. Especially canning jars. I use them in so many ways. This is actually a Martha Stewart idea. I think I saw it about 8 to 10 years ago. I don't have too many sewing supplies, so, this is perfect to keep them together. The top pin cushion is just some fiber fill wrapped in fabric and poked through the ring without the seal.
I think the dark brown basket looks good with this fabric. I am planning to mix it with some white storage pieces too. I have a vision of it in my head, I just hope it looks good when I am done.
Always, thank you for stopping by,
