Yesterday I whipped up this little project for my new sewing space. A simple whiteboard that is anything but white.
When we bought the house we inherited this ubiquitous framed Pears Soap print which was hanging in the bathroom. Did you know that Pears is the worlds oldest continuously existing brand?
I decided to reuse the frame, and so took to the back staples with a pair of pliers.
I discovered that the print was actually adhered to the backing board, so I turned the board around and used double sided fusible web (in this case Vlisofix) to adhere some lovely paisley printed fabric (by April Cornell) with a hot iron. The ironing board was not wide enough so I used a woolen blanket on my cutting table.
After trimming off the excess fabric, I slipped it back inside the frame, (actually I struggled, and cut my finger on the wood as I got it in, but slipped sounds so much more elegant) and now it is ready to be used as a “white”(Paisley) board, to list all my projects on.
I bet you have an old frame waiting for a make-over……a DIY Christmas present for someone perhaps.
