I spent Saturday working on a project for my sister. For years she has been displaying her jewelry on a large corkboard hung on the wall. Unfortunately, the corkboard recently gave up the fight and so we've been talking through ways to improve upon the same basic idea. We bought a large silver Ribba frame at Ikea, took out the plastic, cut down white foamboard inside, covered the foam with a lovely white on white flowered cotton, and rigged a mirror in another Ribba frame to hang in the center. Looks easy, sounds easy, took most of the day!
hmmm...I wonder if I'm just putting off cleaning my room and doing my laundry? ;-)
