How, you might ask... well the hubby had an old white board he wasn't using so instead of getting a canvas or frame I just covered that. We bought these curtains when we were putting together her nursery from Ikea and they were super de duper long so I had a ton of left over fabric when I hemmed them. Plenty to use for this project.
I undid the trim, cut here and there and turned it into something completely different. The only thing I bought was some red and white checkered ribbon. Not exactly my first choice when it comes to colors for a girl, but the doc was so unsure she was going to be a girl that I had to keep things neutral. It still came out pretty cute though.
So, put your thinking cap on, grab what you have and get creative!
