Happy Friday !
If you are a regular here you know about my list obsession.
If you're not then here is the low down : I am obsessed with making lists.
I make about 23 a day - lose 20 of them and forget the other 3 at home when I run errands.
Regardless - making them keeps me sane.
Between my lists, coupons, receipts and everyday mail my fridge
usually always looks like this...
...and I'm over it.
Here is my solution :
Fabulous or what?
This solves all of my problems.
I've tried the organization baskets too many times, they always turn out to be a bigger mess than what my fridge looked like.
I was on a mission, on a google mission.
Yes. Google pulled through yet again !
It lead me to this great blog "Girl Loves Glam".
Who A has fabulous projects and B has an even better organization board.
What did we do before the Internet existed ? No seriously.
Thanks McKenzie !
I "borrowed" McKenzie's templates (only because she offers them on her site of course) put my own twist on it and voila I am now organized.
Check out how I did it !
Glue plywood pieces together using wood glue.
Each piece was 7 inches wide - 30 inches long
I then stained the ends of my wood and painted it over "antique white"
Using my Lotta Jansdotter Stencils I decorated my backboard !
Tip : Using adhesive spray for holding your stencil in place is a different and easier way than using tape.
Here is the finished stencil.
I wanted the distressed look so my stencils are not perfect on purpose.
Sanding various places (where I applied the stain) is an easy distressed look.
Moving on to the objects on the board.
I covered an old tomato paste can with scrapbook paper - this will hold my markers & pens.
Using sandpaper, I gave my new frames an old look.
Glued some buttons to the top of tacks
Filled my frames with my printed templates and attached them to the backboard with my adhesive dots.
Done & Done !
Picture overload coming your way.
Hope you enjoyed the board as much as I do !
Thanks for stopping in today.
I'm off to make a list, it makes it even more exciting that I now have a place to hang it.
