Simple Bulletin Board Vintage Redo

This is a repost of a little Spring project :)
Some of the *little vintage items* I picked up at the Pasadena flea market 
have finally been used for a little bulletin board redo :-)
 First, paint while your kids are doing their schoolwork...
(then you're right there when they have questions)  ;-)
Measure...
 and cut your fabric to fit....
Because I wasn't sure I'd want it to be permanent, ( I change things alot)
I used thumbtacks to attach fabric and lace..
You could use hot glue, but I used scrapbook dots to attach the buttons!
 Vintage millinery, buttons and crochet flowers...

The little ones are my friend Terri's sweet children, aren't they adorable?
 add photos or other inspirational items...
and hang it on the wall :-)
 *I ♥love♥ using things you already have on hand *

I hope you all find time to create a little something fun yourselves :-)

Have a glorious weekend my friends...
Blessings,
Marcia

  19. LOVE it! :) So pretty. I, too, love to use things I already have on hand. I'm one of those people who may see something and KNOW I have nowhere to use it RIGHT NOW, but hmmmm.....maybe I'll find a place to use it later? So I buy it! Makes for a nice stash to invade when the mood arises. ;)

  51. Hi Marcia, Nice to meet you. Thanks for coming to my blog. You will have to visit Arkansas sometime... Gorgeous state --and not so 'touristy' (which we love)....

    I can tell that you are a very creative lady... With 6 kids, one HAS to be creative. Right? (I only had 3.... ha)....

    Love your new bulletin board--and love that it's 'temporary' so that you change it when you want to....

    Thanks again. Hope you return.

    Hugs,
    Betsy
