A while back I walked you through making a ribbon board for The Redhead's Room to store all her hot hair accessories. Today, it's Bow Board, version 2.0.
Cool Sister saw an idea for a board for Miss L, and thought I might be interested in the project. She also knew I might have a metric ton of chicken wire in my garage.
(Note: last year, all the landscaping plants on The V Side were encased in cylinders or fences made of chicken wire. "Wow!" you must be thinking. "Quite a bunny problem you had there, huh!"
Our "Problem" weighs about 63 pounds and believed that landscaping plants = buffet:
OK. So now that McSlobbery up there appears to have outgrown his "affliction", the chicken wire has come off.... but apparently it's not something you can just chuck in the garbage bin and say 'sayonara'. So until we find the appropriate way to recycle/get rid of it, I am ALL.FOR. projects that require me to use it!
Onto the board:
I started with the same frame I used for Miss L's above the bed wall decor, only a smaller size.
I gave it the same coat of Gloss White paint that I gave the other frame, so they would match.
Next step was to cut and secure the chicken wire. You'll need tin snips to cut the chicken wire, and as hard as you try to measure on the seams, you will end up with a couple jagged edges. And those HURT, people! Do yourself a favor and grab a pair of garden gloves while you're working on this. Chicken wire can cut you easily and I've got the band-aids to prove it.
I measured and snipped, then secured the chicken wire in the smallest part (closest to the front) of the frame. Upon recommendation from Mr.V., I stapled the wire in, rather than trying to use construction adhesive, which was my original plan (I've mentioned before my penchant to use too much glue. Good advice!).
