Memo boards!

Well now that we have started hanging things in our new place I had to get these memo boards up!  Now I'm excited to start pinning up my inspiration like I do on Pinterest! (check out Pinterest it is LOVELY)

This is seriously clean for my Craft room and yes I made a giant cran in the 6th grade and STILL have it!  Thats my husbands old TV on my buffet... neither one could find a good place in our new apartment so they became apart of my craft room.

Please excuse the poor photos I was trying to beat the sun going down and didn't do the best job!

Supplies -
I bought some sound proofing board from home depot.  A huge piece 4x8 feet cost just under $12.  Then with some coupons for Joann's Fabric I got a few yards of fabric for grand total of $4!  Finally in the discount bin behind the frames section at Michaels I found a box of picture hanging hooks for only a $1!!

So all in all two 2x2 memo boards only cost me $17!  Plus I have more of the large sound proofing board to make more memo boards out of!

I laid the 2x2 board in the middle of my yard of fabric and wrapped it like a present!  Then of course put down some hot glue and busted out my staple gun to secure it.  I'm not hanging anything heavy so I just hot glued the hanging system in the middle!
Both boards for lots of inspiration space!
This is the pattern on the second board I put up!  I wanted intricate patterns in soft colors so I thought these worked Perfectly!

This is my little necklace or what have you hanging bar I made.  I did a crackle paint on it followed by a stain.
