Another French Bulletin Board

I have been sitting on posting this project for a bit, because I was waiting until it arrived at my best friend’s place. It was a birthday gift. Her birthday was in January, but better late than never, you know? You can see my other French bulletin board here.

I bought an ugly old French bulletin board at Salvation Army. Then I recovered it with this awesome Suzani print that I bought online at Have you been to that website? It has SO many different awesome patterns at very reasonable prices. (*They are not paying me to say this, I just really like their website.*)

Once recovered, I added some ribbon. A super easy project that makes a lovely present.

Seriously – how freaking awesome is this suzani print? With the adorable little seahorses? The yellow and brown and pink? I am freaking obsessed with this fabric.

That’s all I got for today, folks. I will try to be more on top of blogging, but like, only if I feel like it. Because I am not going to let blogging become another obligation on my time. I just want it to be funny happy time.

For the love of seahorses!


French Bulletin Board

French Bulletin Board

So I have been meaning to make one of these things for ages. I bought an old French bulletin board for $5 at Salvation Army and had been super slow to get this project together.

When I bought the base, it looked like this:

And then I covered it with this great black/white fabric that I got at Joann’s (30% off). I added ribbons:

And then you can put lovely photos and cards into the bulletin board. I love French bulletin boards because they allow me to display a bunch of various things, but help to keep my space from looking too cluttered, or resembling a teenager’s room with every photo just stuck on the wall without frames or anything. Also, I like that it acts like a big piece of artwork for a bunch of little stuff. And then you add the word “French” in front of it, so it’s got to be fancy, right? Like French doors (wow, those doors are huge!), or French toast (toast covered in eggs and fried up in a pan served with syrup: yes, please!), or French fries (OK, I went too far with this French thing and am not certain how to get back…)… I haven’t slept much lately.

Soon, I hope, I will get this bad boy hung up. I would do it right now, but it’s 10:31 pm on a week night and I am pretty sure my neighbors already think I am nutso because who uses power tools in student housing?

Au Revoir,
