I had an old pinboard lying around. It wasn't very aesthically pleasing so I painted the frame blue and reupholstered it with some beautiful toile fabric that my bestie gave me. However when I added the thumb tacks, they just didn't look right so I decided to make them a little more exciting.
I had some thrifted scrabble pieces left over after making a guest room display , fridge magnets and labels around the house which seemed just perfect for my next project.
Simply glue the scrabble pieces to the the thumb tacks and voila, they look much more appealing.
The scrabble pieces somewhat blend into the background but that's better than thumb tacks standing out.
Now I just need to find some adorable pictures and inspirational quotes to pin all over this board.
