Before I left DC, my sister and I made a stop at the Ikea in Woodbridge to stock up on furniture and fun things for our new house in Raleigh. One of the things I loved the most were the white magnetic boards they used for decoration, and I thought I could easily incorporate them into my room!
At first, I intended to stack three of them on top of each other between my windows, but three ended up being one too many, so I moved one into my bathroom. But, I thought the other two needed a little snazz between them, so I hung three picture frames in between them. For a long time, I went back and forth on printing pictures to place in them, but I ended up thinking a little extra creative inspiration might be more fun!
(A couple of you may recognize your save the dates up there, haha! But I ran out of magnets, so I have a few more to post. The other thing is a Valentine's card from my mom that says, "I love you a hole punch." Ba dum bum ching!)
Since my sewing machine sits on the desk below these boards (which I won't show you because it's pretty cluttered right now), I thought a little sewing lingo might be fun. No, basting is not something you just do to a turkey. And since I love to share my projects with y'all, I made sure to include a reminder to blog!
Making these was pretty simple! First, I went to PatternCooler.com and customized three patterns with the colors I wanted. Once I downloaded the free PNG files at the end, I used PowerPoint to adjust the patterns to fit my picture frames. Then, I downloaded a fun font from DaFont.com and typed the words. Voila! Printed on some regular computer paper and I was finished!
I think they add a little extra pop of color to the room, and I love them!
I promise I'll show more pictures of my room once everything is actually put away. It's still a little bit of a disaster zone right now!
