Inspiration board...

Or should I say "Inspiration bored"... I seem to get a lot of things done when I feel bored! I took a bulletin board that my husband picked up at a yard sale for $1--- he never got around to using it, so I took it. Here you can partially see what the before of the bulletin board looked like. Of course, being that I can never leave anything alone. I used some Mod Podge and glued some vintage sheet music to cover the black frame. I distressed the paper with some ink pads.Then I stapled two layers of muslin fabric to cover the blueish/gray fabric....Then I glued some vintage dresden trim to cover the fabrics edge and the staples. (this is part of my dresden stash that I picked up for only $3!!)Next I glued and used thumb tacks to hold some ribbon in place so I can tuck some photos onto the board.... All finished and hung in place! (those jars are full of mother of pearl buttons!)
Taaaaaaaa daaaaaaaaaaa inspiration board completed!
Now, I've got to find things to inspire me ;-P
