I have been wanting to make a French memo board for... I can't even remember how long. I have finally gotten all of the pieces (and my shit) together and created that very thing:
This probably would not have been my absolute, "A Number 1" (how is that spelled out, anyway?) choice of fabrics to use, but I've been trying hard to use things in my stash lately. Here was a yard of fabric I liked that also looked good with the dining room walls, sooo... used it. I also had that trim and those upholstery tacks on hand... what the heck was I planning to make with all of that crap?
I dunno, but it came together pretty well as a memo board. Now I have a pretty place to put photos and cards... you should send me some!
Here's the action photo. Not great quality, but it's dark out and I wanted to post this bad boy:
In other news, I found a binding fabric for that baby quilt (yay!) and I've been painting in the bathroom (double yay!) Photos soon!
