I got crafty today! I needed a new bulletin board in my kitchen. Well, actually, I needed a bulletin board, period I had been putting my special cards, pictures and kid projects on a blackboard...with tape! I decided I needed an upgrade. I liked the bulletin boards I had seen in Pottery Barn and Ballard Design but needed something a bit more economical, and they were so girly!! I needed something less so!
I had ordered the jute webbing from an upholsters supply store. I want to use it as garland on my Christmas tree next year. Pottery Barn was selling something very similar before Christmas but it sold out very fast. Plus I believe they had 10 yards for $17. I ordered 75 yards (!!!) as it was cheaper than ordering cut 25 yards from craft supply stores. (Please let me know if you need any, I have plenty!)
I was originally going to cover the bulletin board in a burlap with a stamped design on it. But could not decide on a design. After I got the webbing, my weaving experience from ole Murray State came back! (Professor Boyd would be proud!) I got a canvas on clearance at HoLo and got to work!
