Today’s inspiration is taking the old and making it new again.
I got this lovely memo board from my Grammie several years ago and over time it’s been bleached/stained by the sun. Exhibit A:
So it’s been stashed in a closet because I couldn’t bear to cast is aside. I started by peeling the backing off, much to the delight of a couple fur balls.
I used my trusty staple gun to attach new fabric around the board.
Re-attached the backing with my glue gun.
Adhered some ribbon where the twine used to be and added some new star embellishments to replace the seashells.
Now, in all honesty, this doesn’t match anything in our apartment, so I think it’s going to end up in my etsy shop.
The moral of the story? If you’re about to chuck something in the trash, consider what it could be with a little TLC.
