This pin board project has been on my mind for a long, long time.
I've always loved having pin boards around my workspace, I guess that's what 5 years of architecture school does to you. My professors have ingrained in me to pin up my ideas, works and inspirations to continuously feed our creavity. But there are some not-too-attractive pin boards out there and the closest one that I would want in my home is a bit out of my price range. I blogged about it here. So finally, one weekend, with little to do, my husband and I wandered into Hobby Lobby and got everything I need: 1) 2 pieces of 24" x 36" x 3/16" thick foam board 2) canvas - enough to cover the 48" x 60" 3) 24" x 36" open back wooden frame. And here is the final product: wooden framed canvas pin board.
All in all, we spent about $35 for the project, which I am very happy with.
