pegboard. Over the last couple of weeks, I've been thinking of how I wanted the design to go. I've seen a lot of nice ones on the web, but I wanted something uniquely mine. So, I went to Lowe's looking at paint swatches. There I found that they are packaging 8 oz samples of their paint colors and selling them for $1.50 each. So I picked my two favorite colors - lime and teal (in their muted form) for a mere $3. I also grabbed a roll of orange electrical tape as the accent color. (You know I can't remember where I got the idea of electrical tape but I bet it was on pinterest).
For once, I didn't plan it the board. . . . it just evolved. What I like about it is that it has a clean updated look but its in total contrast with the Victorian feel of the room. Plus when I get sick of it - I can just peel off the tape and repaint the board. Cool huh?! Ohhh and yeah there is still plenty of paint left for other projects in the room.

Plus we started the monster design board today. 8 ft by 12 ft Monster big! I originally was going to cover it with an inexpensive blanket - only to find that they don't make cheapie blankets any more. They're all made out of microfiber fleece or are heated or are super plush. Sigggghhhhh - so I settled on a nice felt. Paul made me frames for the 8 ft by 4 ft sheets of 1/2" insulation board. I stapled the felt over the insulation to the frame below. Now he just has to figure out how to attach the wall.
And yes - finished another block of the sign quilt and started another. I promise - I'll show you them soon!
So what have you been up creatively???
