February 1 – Pinboard

Feb 1

 

Today I’m giving away this fabric covered pinboard or bulletin board. This was a failed craft project I made about 10 years ago, maybe longer. The fabric was a sample I got at the Textile Museum annual sale where you can get great small swatches of fabric (donated to the museum from fabric companies) for really cheap.  I slip covered all of the cottage furniture with samples from that sale (not this pattern).  The pinboard seemed like a good idea for my home office, but I found really quickly that the fabric creates tension against the pins so they slowly pull themselves out, you can tuck photos and things under the ribbon frame but it kind of looks messy and after a week of stuff falling off the board I put it in the basement.  It’s been there ever since.

I’m going to take the fabric and ribbons off of it and give the bulletin board underneath to my sister with kids.  All homes with kids can use an extra bulletin board, even if it’s for the basement.

I'm trying to make more space in my life so I'm getting rid of stuff. All the things that I've been hanging on to that might have some utility for someone else, if no longer for me. I'm going to try to give something away every day.

    So cool. You’re not just getting rid of something you don’t need, you’re improving it so it is really useful for someone else.
