Once I got it to a certain point, I couldn't decide what I wanted to do with it, so it sat... and sat... and then I saw some blog posts here and here and a couple of pinterest postings and the ideas finally began to gel. I guess it's like anything else and I just have to wait for inspiration to strike.
I bought foam insulation board at Home Depot (the same product Craft Buds used in her blog post) but I had a terrible time getting it up on the wall. That whole "poke a hole in the back with scissors and hang it on a nail" thing just didn't work for me. I finally found a blog that suggested using finishing nails, and decided to try that, and it worked fine. Unfortunately, I have small nail holes both in the design board and in the wall, but I decided that I could live with it.
Next up, shelves on the wall and then decorating with all of my cool swappy stuff. I've got mug rugs and pennants and mini quilts just itching to be displayed. After that, I need to make some fabric baskets for the cubbbies, and wrap my fabric around comic book boards so I can get the fabric out of the plastic bins and actually see what I have (maybe that will mean I won't go re-buy fabric I already have?) Maybe?
So, some questions for you, dear readers: when you buy fabric bundles, do you keep them all together in their pretty little bundles? Do you remove the plastic? How do you store them so they look pretty, but don't get all dusty if they're not behind glass doors?
I could really use your help!
