Now, here's a quick little project I did. And I'm going to do more for Alison's friends. I wasn't sure it would work....... but it did! And one projects leads to an idea for another one
Okay, here goes: See this little batman bucket? I found it in the dollar spot at Target. The almost always have a version of this little aluminum bucket. If you were having a batman themed party these would be super cute filled with batman masks and candy, etc. But I wasn't interested in the super hero, I liked the bucket. AND it was marked down half price. So 50 cents. I love half priced anything. And I knew at that price it didn't really matter if my idea worked or not.
This project is still in the works. Found a cork bulletin board at Michaels in the clearance section for $3. I guess they had it there because the cork had a dent in it so it was "damaged" but who cares about a little dents? Hello little bulletin board. It's not your fault somebody stepped on you. I painted the frame black. Should have sanded it but it just didn't cross my mind so the paint bubbled up. I had to let it dry and then sand it and then paint it. Took about 3 coats to get that dark shiny black. Then I just measured and cut the fabric. Glued it on. Added the ribbon trim. And so it's almost done. Decided to make some rossette thumb tacks and it'll be good.
This morning I found a GREAT project in the new Ballard Design catalog. Can't wait to figure out how to copy it!!
