Shabby Chic Photo Display

This has been one of my favorite projects lately. I have had this idea for a while now, but finally found some cheap enough crystal knobs to get started! I would of done this in cream (to match my daughters furniture), but with us renting right and NO wall color, I went with a light pink.

Here are steps to create this photo display (or coat rack)
I purchase crystal knobs on ebay for $1.25 each and FREE shipping! Frames are from dollar tree and the wood was FREE from my garage. Of course you will need some pink spray paint.
I sprayed the frames and piece of wood.

I then measured, marked and drilled the holes to attach the crystal knobs. After this, I attached the knobs to the board, placed photos in frames, hot glued ribbon to use as hangers!
Give it a try!

Memory Board

My daughter has been wanting to display photos of her family and friends in her bedroom, who can blame her? We just moved 2000 miles away from everyone she ever knew! So I decided to make this cork board a little more "girly" for her.

This is a cute, fun, and inexpensive project that you could customize for any room in your home.

Here are my step by step instructions....

After ironing the fabric, wrap it tightly and staple around the edges. I also used the stapler for the ribbon.

I bought these white push pins to put at the intersections...

final project! I can't wait to hang it up in her room, but it is 11:30 and she is sleeping :)
