Hello my name is Kristen and I am a copycat. I rarely come up with creative or inventive ideas on my own. Somehow that gene skipped me, so I take ideas from other people and either tweek them or copy them completely.
About seven months ago, I saw this post on Lindsey's blog. We have the same type of space in our kitchen so when I saw her incredibly creative idea, I just knew I wanted to tackle that project. Well, I FINALLY got to making my fabric covered sound boards last week. I was a little nervous as this is out of my normal crafty zone (which is quite narrow). It was a super easy project and I am so excited to put them to use. No more cluttered refrigerator doors. No more cluttered school room. I now have a large space to put school work and pictures. AAH - feels so good! Now to buy some of Lindsey's cute push pins to help decorate the boards. (If you haven't shopped Lindsey's shop, stop by! She creates the cutest things. I am big fan and frequent shopper!)
Oh, by the way, another discovery, when your husband tells you "just go buy the paint and I will paint" he might now have been 100% serious. Now the gallons (all 3 of them plus 2 quarts) of paint have been purchased and the walls are patiently waiting for their makeover while the kids and I are in Montana.
