Trash is most definitely a relative word.
I may or may not be the creepy lady stalking her neighbors as they take trash out to make sure they aren’t throwing something away I may want.
A similar occurrence as mentioned above may or may not have happened just last night.
And since I may or may not have a fondness for what others consider trash, I am stoked about this new series:
The first Friday of every month you can join myself, Thistlewood Farms, So Much Better with Age and a Guest Host for a fabulous trash to treasure project that costs $10 or less. This month, we are graced by the presence of At the Pickett Fence as our guest host.
For my trash to treasure project this month, I took a bulletin board my husband was going to toss and covered it in fabric.
But, Jenna, this is nothing new.
Fabric covered message boards are everywhere.
Well, mine is slightly different.
No, not at that beautiful gold hardware I added to give it a “campaign” feel.
But, yes, go on and admire it too.
Now, look closer.
There ya go. See, it’s a sassy bulletin board.
This was simple!
First, I cut my fabric a little bigger than my board.
I wanted the definition of the frame around the bulletin board, so first, I ran hot glue around the front of the board where the cork and frame meet, then quickly pushed the fabric into that crevice.
And after that , I just hot glued the fabric along the back to secure it.
Oh, and those fantastic little golden animal pushpins.
They are simply spray painted plastic animals I picked up at a yard sale and then hot glued them to tacks.
Now, for the fun.
Here’s what some of my “sassy” photos say and my commentary.
Absolutely. I have a clear purpose.
If you just pictured Stephanie Tanner saying that, you are my best friend.
Every time, call me. Every single time. I’m sure I will have something to say as well. And then we will both feel better about ourselves.
Everyday. Everyday, put on your awesome pants. My tend to be stretchy pants or shorts.
I beg of you. Please do this. Its really for the good of mankind.
So confusing. I mean, really, someone should pay me to just be me. Because I’m that fabulous.
I hope you enjoyed that as much as I did.
