Fill it up. Pin it up.

My weekend girls' trip to Charleston got cancelled at the last minute, so I had an unexpectedly productive weekend.  Friday night I picked up an ugly bulletin board from Target for $9.34 and spent an hour transforming it into a linen and nail-head pinboard courtesy of an idea I spotted in a design magazine and some left-over materials from other projects I had hanging out in our basement. 

Blake helped me hang it (I'm nothing if not horrible at centering/leveling/measuring things) and, there you have it, an under $10.00, under an hour project to fill that horrible blank wall in the study that's been staring me in the face for the past two years. 

Remember how I said that gestational period for my projects is usually about ten months?  Well, this project (from idea to completion) took only a day, but my desire to put something on that wall has been haunting me since we moved into the house. Now, where does that put me in terms of a project timeline?


  1. Classy. I'm inspired by your creativity. Don't be mad if I copy.

  2. That is adorable! And you said you weren't crafty....
