A few things

While I've had to hang around the house I've managed to cross a few things off my 'to do' list.
I made these bulletin boards for my computer cabinet a few years ago. They get a lot of use but the fabric was kind of busy so I decided to recover them.


There are 4 - one on each side of the inside of the cabinet and one on the inside of each door. The first time I covered them in a yellow & blue floral.



This time, I used a drop cloth and pink ribbon. Better?


I also made a board for hanging my scissors. (no - this isn't all of them - not even half) I found this frame at Hobby Lobby marked down to 3.00 a while back and knew I could figure out something to do with it. I painted it (it was black) and covered some foam board with more of the painters crop cloth. It looks pretty blah hanging on the fugly beige wall but eventually I will paint in here. I'm thinking about using a soft (really soft) pink. Will see - there are still walls to paint downstairs before I move to the upstairs. I also re-covered my bulletin board that is hanging on the wall (also with the drop cloth) but I failed to take a pic. Like the scissor board, it also has a white frame and the wall color doesn't do a thing for it at the moment. I'll get a pic later.
Back to business.
Hope you are having a great week!

I love the way you are using dropcloths! That pink ribbon is just the icing on the cake. Now I'm wondering what I could do with a dropcloth...

Everything is better with pink. I love what you did with your scissors. I put it on my blog.

You are bringing a whole new meaning to the use of drop cloths! I love what you've done. And I really like your scissors all lined up. Very pretty!

I have never seen drop cloths used so creatively! I love the boards and the scissor frame is just wonderful! Makes me want to get busy and make one.

Love the framed scissors and that saluting man scossor holder is just fanastic.
