I know posting has been a little sporadic lately, but we have been busy busy busy!
We had birthday parties for my little ladies, Mr.V's side/summer business is taking off, an unexpected surgery for our furry friend, and there was a mother's day thrown in there, I think. It's been a blur. :)
But, I *have* been doing some projects here and there, just haven't had time to post!
This one was a quickie, though, and I love the end result.
I have had this small round corkboard (a DIY from yesteryear) hanging in the pantry for a while to help me corral grocery lists, notes about what's getting low, etc. Lately I've found that meal planning has become a necessity for us, and with that addition, well, as you can see shorty wasn't cutting it.
I finally had enough one afternoon and dug through my stash and found this lovely cheetah-print corkboard that I had picked up more than a year ago.
I knew the cheetah had to go, so I grabbed a fun, printed napkin I had found (in a set) at Target. Napkins are really versatile, usually cheap and perfect for small projects like this one, or pillows, etc.
It was my lucky day and the size was perfect - I took the cork out of the frame and didn't even have to trim the fabric, just wrapped it around the board, secured it on the back and then shoved it back in the frame.
The frame itself got a coat of creamy ivory paint, and I scrounged through my odds and ends ribbon collection to find something to hang it with.
Much better. :)
One hour and zero dollars later, it's all good. :)
