This collection certainly gets me in the mood to go outside and see what else I can do to add to my curb appeal – maybe there’s a trip to the garden centre in my near future…perhaps today!

Don’t forget to pop back later this evening for my link party, Make the Scene Monday,

I am looking forward to seeing what you have been creating lately!

DIY Bulletin Board & Flower Push Pins

DIY Bulletin Board 3 thumb DIY Bulletin Board & Flower Push Pins

With a little help from my husband we made this stylish bulletin board for our 12 year old daughters room. She was in need of a way to put her keepsakes on display and a bulletin board fit the part.

The average bulletin board was a little too plain for my liking so we dressed it up with a little trim and pretty push pins.

Here’s the materials you’ll need.

DIY Buletin Board Alderberry Hill thumb DIY Bulletin Board & Flower Push Pins

1. Wood Frame Bulletin Board

2. MDF Casing

3. Wooden Square Medallions

4. Construction Adhesive

5. Painters Caulking

5. Paint

We used the square medallions to eliminate having to mitre cut

and it also added a decorative touch.

The length of your casing will depend on the size of your bulletin board, we cut 2 lengths at 20” and 2 at 32” and our square medallions were 3” square.

We used the construction adhesive to adhere the casing and square medallions to the bulletin board and for added strength my husband secured with a few brad nails using a nail gun.

We then covered any seams with painters caulking and then I gave it a fresh coat of white paint.

To make the pretty paper flowers I downloaded this file form the Silhouette online store.

They are very easy to put together, just layer leaves, and then the biggest to smallest petal pieces and use a fancy brad to keep it all together.

And then use a dab of hot glue to attach your push pins to the back of your flowers.

Guest Post: Craft Room Storage Bins from House on the Way

Hello Alderberry Hill readers! My name is Leslie and I blog at House on the Way. I want to say a big Thank You to Sarah for having me today! I’m excited to share with you and I’d like to invite you to pay me a visit over at House on the Way where I blog about home decor, design, DIYs and crafts.

Recently I’ve been working on creating my home office/craft room. Today I’m sharing a little project that I recently completed in the quest for some great storage ideas for the room.

I had some wooden storage bins that were originally navy blue, but were spray painted black last year. With my office makeover, I found some great fabric for curtains and decided to paint the bins green to coordinate with the fabric. The paint I used was Krylon’s Ivy Leaf.

I wanted to do something different and fun for the inside of the bins. I thought it would be fun to pull out the yellow in the curtains. I found some great 12″x12″ yellow and white honeycomb scrapbook paper. For each side and bottom of the bins, I cut the paper to fit and used Mod Podge to decoupage the paper to the inside of each storage bin.

I made sure to trim the paper to the exact size needed. I brushed the Mod Podge to the inside of the bin, applied the paper and then worked the bubbles out of the paper using a straight edge. After waiting about 20 minutes, I applied a layer of Mod Podge over the paper.

The look of the yellow against the green is perfect! They bring out the colors in the curtains and give some added pizzaz to the bookcases.

This is such a quick and easy update for any wooden storage bin. It’s a fun look too!

You can check out a few other projects that I’ve done for my home office like my faux bamboo roman shade made from a placemat and my pleated fabric covered stool. The home office/craft room is a constant work in progress, so I’d love for you to stop by House on the Way and pay me a visit sometime. You’re always welcome!

Thank you for letting me share with you today and a big thanks to Sarah for inviting me! Have a great day!
