Once upon a time...we went to IKEA with 15 minutes until closing...
I know what your thinking...why?
And all I can say is...I have no idea. But I was somehow able to get everything on my list! It must be some kind of miracle or we were really fast at navigating our way through the never ending maze of confusion.
In the last 5 minutes, I spotted a $5 cork board and grabbed it!
It was kind of a boring cork board but I kept thinking in my mind: "I can use this!" <---Mr. H says this is my favorite catch phrase about everything along with: "I can make that!"
I started doing a preschool co-op with a sweet friend (it is so awesome-I would highly recommend it) and I wanted to put all the cute artwork we do with the girls on it so...
First, I taped off and painted the frame grey. Then, I made a paper polka dot template and used a sponge brush to stencil the yellow dots on.
I know I've shared with you my obsession with vintage spools. I found the idea to convert vintage spools into thumbtack spools HERE.
I think its kind of fun! Plus it displays my vintage maps quite nicely! :)
Not to mention all the cute toddler art we will be featuring on it...
