This is the finished project of two different ideas I have been playing around with for the last year or so, totally inspired by the bloggy world. I have seen wonderful inspiration boards made with a cork board and fabric as well as memo boards made out of chicken wire.

Here is what I did… had ugly brown cork memo board sitting unused in basement. I am not really a fabric person as I can not sew, but I do scrapbook and love all the printed papers. But you really can’t cover a corkboard with paper and then proceed with punching holes in the paper, it just would not last long and leave ugly holes in your paper when you took something down.

I also had bought a roll of chicken wire which was going to be a stand alone inspiration board and use it to hang jewelry in my mstr. bedroom closet. .. I still might do that with some of the left over.

However, I had taken down a string which I had used to hang the kiddos artwork and wanted something a bit more sophisticated using the chicken wire. The first idea to use an old picture that I do not use anymore did not really work out – too big for the space I wanted to hang it.

Anyway the memo board became the next thing to experiment with the chicken wire and if I do say so myself I think it turned out beautiful and will be very useful.

I bought wood letters to paint and hang above it . .. The word will be CREATE. . .

It is hanging in our family room/office area – is slowly becoming my crafting space as well. Would take a picture of the room but it is a disaster. . .

Have a great weekend. . . I plan on being out in our garden area as well as maybe a hike and picnic if the weather cooperates.
