Thanks for joining me again for Day Two of my Dress Those Walls Series. If you missed yesterday’s post, be sure to take a look.
On to today’s project:
There was this horrible eyesore in my kitchen.
Every time I walked into the room, my eye was drawn to the clutter and the overwhelming cork board. It was like a black hole. Only tan…
I remembered that I had one sole, abandoned curtain that would work to recover the board and a box full of thumbtacks. And an idea was born.
At the time, I didn’t realize that the color of the fabric was the exact same shade of beige as the wall, but I still am pretty happy with the way that the cork board turned out.
I’m really all about using what I have on hand. Because as I mentioned before, trying to take my three girls to the craft store is really just me asking for an ulcer.
This was a curtain that we had for a very specific kitchen window in our house from three years ago when we lived in Philadelphia. I think recovering the board was a pretty good use of this wasted fabric. And the thumb tacks were a great little decorative addition.
I snipped the curtain to fit, painstakingly pinned over 300 thumbtacks into place and then glued down the remaining fabric to the back of the cork board.
It also helped that I cleaned up the clutter on the board.
This wall is pretty massive in it’s bareness so I do have some plans for something to hang over the cork board. But for now, at least my eyes are a little more at ease when I see this wall.
Have you transformed anything lately? What walls are you dressing up in your home?
