Bulletin Board with Buttons

I am joining Reinvented for Trash to Treasure Tuesday-More Flea Market Finds.

I try to do some kind of creative project at least once a week, it makes me happy.  As I was setting up my new computer room, we moved our youngest into a room with his older brother.  I noticed I needed a bulletin board for putting my important papers and notes.  Ah creative time.  

I used an old frame I had bought several years ago at one of my favorite flea markets, I dragged it out of the basement, found some fabric I had in the linen closet and ceiling tiles we had left over from finishing our basement.  I did not take pictures of each of the steps, I did not know I would have such a need to do so.  Let me tell you it was very easy to do, in fact if I were to flip it over you would see duct tape holding the fabric to the ceiling tile.  Sometimes crafty can be VERY easy!

Here is my new bulletin board.

I love old chippy frames, and ahh bark cloth fabric with roses, my favorite.

I also made the button push pins. I love to find new uses for my buttons so they are not just sitting in jars.

Thank you for joining me in my crafty project of the day.  What are you going to do today to be crafty?
