A Couple New Additions to the Office~

I was in need of a place to post some of my favorite quotes and sayings, so I created a new bulletin board for my office.  I just adore the leopard print fabric that I found at my local fabric store, frugal fabrics.  I also love the addition of the greek key ribbon.  The green really pops off the blue leopard print. This was such a simple project.  All that was needed was a store bought cork bulletin board, some fabric, ribbon and my trusty electric staple gun (a life changer).  Simply cut the fabric a bit larger than your board, lay fabric right side down on a solid surface, lay the bulletin board cork side down on the fabric, wrap edge around and  staple to the back of the frame, folding corners like you would a present.  I decided to just add the ribbon in four simple strips creating a frame, however you could go with the traditional criss-cross of a memo board.  There are great tutorials for that online.

I also decided to add some art to  the top of my Ikea expedite.  The Live Laugh Love print was created and gifted to me by my sweet #1, the Hey Y'all print is from the Etsy shop-Stephanie Creekmur, the abstract art is one that I personally painted, and the other two are prints of images I found on Google-one a Lilly Pulitzer quote and the other an Audrey Hepburn quote.  I love the pop of color they add.  The frames are simple white frames I purchased from Michaels during their buy one, get one sale.

I have a lot of other fun projects and some organizational things I would like to conquer, but they have taken a back seat until I receive the results back from my resent procedure.  I am hopeful that I will have answers possibly later today, but know that it could potentially go into Monday because of the weekend.

Happy Weekend my friends!!

The bulletin board is so cute. Love the artwork combo on top of the Expedit too. That "Hey y'all" always calls my name. I've had it saved in my Etsy Favorites for awhile.

Praying for you! The Lord is with you. This weekend I going to move my hubby out of my closet :(. It was his idea because my clothes are everywhere and there's no room for both of our clothes in there. My closet in college was bigger than the one we have now. XOXOXO
