This past Sunday, Layton and I tackled a project that I have been putting off for about two months now. I have been wanting a corkboard similar to the ones you see in Ballard Designs--the ones with the chunky frames. So, I sent a fellow teacher on the hunt for a frame--he garage sales every weekend and finds the neatest stuff. He found one for me at an estate sale and then insisted I take it for FREE--he claims he didn't pay anything--Haney, if you ever read this, Thank You. There was a portrait in it--my kids think it was me when I was little. So, Layton and I put the corkboard on the backside of the portrait, stretched the fabric over it and then screwed it into the frame. I liked the color of the frame, so I didn't even have to paint it. I hung it next to my desk. It doesn't look as nice as the ones you see in Ballard Designs, but Layton and I are proud of it!
