I have mentioned this before…and I’m sure I will mention this again…I am not crafty. The learning curve is steep on the craft front. I admire women (and men) who can create adorable projects from scraps of paper and spray glue.
BTW…spray glue is not my friend. I have a bone to pick with my friend Katy. She mentioned holding up a piece of paper and spraying it with the glue was how she accomplished several projects. Noted. I tried it. Glue was stuck to my thumb for 3 days! Nothing worked to remove it! She failed to mention that part. 😉
Okay…so I’m not crafty but I did manage to complete one craft project. My jewelry board of which I am so proud!
My inspiration came from Pinterest. See here.
You will need:
- Plywood (1/2″ thick)
- Cabinet knobs & handles
- Machine screws (the ones that came with the knobs were too long)
- Drill bits
My dad cut the plywood for me. Thanks Daddy! 🙂 I used an old shirt for the fabric. I stapled the fabric to the plywood. What a job that was! Ha! At one point, Raymond said “Oh My Gosh! What are you doing?!” Every time I pulled the trigger for the staple gun I would either go flying forward or to the side and yell “Ouch!”. Makes me laugh still thinking about it. 🙂
Recap of the project:
Words of wisdom:
- Dont cover the board with fabric first. You cant drill through fabric.
- Quilting batting is not a good idea. Just go with plywood and fabric. The batting bunched!
- Make yours cuter than mine. I would change the fabric and maybe decorative ribbon.
- Buy a new drill. My old lady drill almost bit the dust…saw dust that is. HA! I crack myself up. 🙂
So what do you think? 🙂
Another project update coming soon!
Until next time…
