An inevitability when you have a family is the accumulation of papers, and bits, and photographs, and greeting cards, and party invitations, and appointment cards, and very-special-you-can’t-throw-that-away-ever priceless pieces of 5-year-old art. I hate having these things magneted to every square inch of my fridge, but what else are you going to do with them?
I decided to buy a very giant, very UGLY piece of vintage “art”…
…spray paint the frame, spray tack on a roll of cork and some pretty fabric, hot glue some trim around the edges and make a family bulletin board for all our bits and pieces:
It’s now hanging in the hall, back towards the mudroom, opposite of our family photo gallery. Easy project that makes a big organizational and design impact, don’t you think?
