So...tonight I decided to have a crafty night- sometimes they work out...sometimes night.
Luckily, I think tonight it turned out.
First, I went and bought some $1.99 frames from Target to make the stairway from the basement to our kitchen a little more cheerful.
Then, I had to make a few more stops for my next project. I have been longingly looking at the magnet boards from StealDreamingDesign's etsy shop. And maybe one day I will get one of those adorable boards, but for now my own handiwork will have to do. I searched the web to see if I could figure out how to do it by myself and found some helpful hints on Little Birdie Secret's blog.
I stopped at HomeDepot to get sheet metal, and went to Jo-Ann's to get a piece of fabric. Oh, and I already found a poster frame from Target.
So...first I had to cut the sheet metal to the correct size for my frame. I suggest asking HomeDepot or wherever you get it from if they can cut it. I'm pretty sure that I damaged my new kitchen scissors doing this, but hey- I wanted to do it tonight and they were avaliable.
Then, I cut the fabric and tried to glue it to the back of the sheet metal with Krazy Glue...but when the Krazy Glue didn't work I resorted to using tape which actually worked just fine and was easier than using glue.
Tadaaaaa!!! Here is the final product!
And testing out the magnetiness of the board...
Now I just need my hubby to come home so that he can hang it up! :)
and we meet
