Bulletin board and lamp project
































Catchy little title ey? Sorry. No brilliant title ..but a fun little project or two today! You saw the before of the frame I got...well here is the after of it. Turned out nicely...although I DO NOT like the rolled cork that I used. Way to thin and brittle. But I did not want to piece the cork squares together. NOW I should say now...I am not to be held responsible for the dark icky pics....this craft room of mine is a cave. I splurged and got a waist high project table ...which is what everything is sitting on. I will share that more later.....I painted the top white to match the rest of the room...and plan to put a skirt on the lower half. It gives me a lot more space to work, which I sorely need. The other project is the lamp...I found some polka dot fabric second hand and covered it with that. I also am in the process this evening of making my own push pins...just hot gluing vintage buttons to the metal type tacks. Things are coming along in here.....we'll have to see what i share next...with my decorating ADD......who knows. OHHHHH notice my new blog header.....done by Shabby Creations....Michelle does an outstanding job! She got me out of my pickle....except for losing my fave blog addies and my site meter...never should have tried on my own....rofl..what a joke! Well that is it for me tonight. xoxo,c herry

I did the exact same thing with a frame a few months back and used the rolled cork... DID NOT like the rolled cork at all, but it still turned out lovely. So did yours!

I love your blog and your projects are just great. I ordered one of your Halloween banners at Etsy and I can't wait to get it.

These two projects are just too cute. I especially love those spools of cherry ribbon. Thanks for sharing your talent with us.

Just a little something from Judy said...

That's it. I decided, after seeing your post today, that I am going to bring some of my old things to your front door and leave them. You have an amazing gift at being able to transform "old" to "gorgeous". I loved everything you shared today. Can't even tell you what was my favorite. Beautiful post and new banner.

CHERRY GIRL! hey great looking header! Once I changed things playing around and all my posts were 3 feet below the comments....? Someone did I say I had probably added something that my template didn't like and it was punishing me....I had to go back several days and figure out that I had changed a color of a font and everything went haywire after that! What a learning curve! Anyhoo....
When I get the nerve I will post the bikini picture...you may get the surprise of your life!

I love the button thumb tacks! Great project for the bagful of buttons I just got. :-) Thanks for the heads-up on the sheets of cork...wasn't sure if it would work for a (found in the trash) frame I have...looks like I should keep my eyes peeled for a cheap (yard sale even) cork board that I can re-purpose.

Wendy said...

The frame looks great white! And the lamp turned out really nice. I made tacks for my kids the same way!

BTW, the blog looks great!
