Picture Board


This is my picture board where I put all those pictures of friends and family that we get throughout the year and at Christmas-time. Everyone that comes over loves to stop and look over the photos of people they know or have heard about. Can you see your picture?

I have it hanging on the wall between my dining room and kitchen. My whole dining room is red. :-D

I made it by covering a cork board with batting and material. Then I criss-crossed the ribbons over it and held the ribbons in place where they crossed with upholsterers tacks. Buttons were hot glued over the tacks to hide them. The material and ribbons are stapled onto the back of the cork board.

Red stimulates the appetite, you know. Want those boys to eat up for all the work they do! :-D

Red dining rooms are very popular here. I've seen all shades of red, from terra cotta to cranberry. I love your picture board!

I didn't know red stimulated the appetite. Interesting. How is their appetite in another room? ;-) I love red walls though, I have red walls in my home. Eye-catching, warm, daring.
