Inspiration Board

My new work space needed an Inspiration Board (I can be quite a magpie like that) where I could pin  beautiful things for when I am dreaming & creating. Last weekend the husband and I got together to make this for me. 

This was the inspiration for my Inspiration Board

Frame with original print in it - isn't the print so pretty!
I got the frame from Moveline Liquidation for CAD 6/-, the fabric was a curtain from the local Goodwill store, and the pearls were a necklace from the local dollar store. Total cost of Memo board is 9/- !! It is a good sized board at 33 x 27 inches which gives me much space to put up stuff.

Ta Da ! I love it so ! 

Do you see my new biz card pinned to it? Can you see the little crochet baby clothes? I had picked those in Bahrain for making a custom 'Baby' type card but they were so cute I ended up keeping them for myself.

We put a layer of dacron under the fabric to give a tufted look & feel. I love the color of the frame - it has the look of antique gold with a grey patina in the grooves. Moveline has some great furniture and frames and if you ever need a piece to reupholster check them out first.
