DIY:Carol Roeda Inspired Board

If you remember my nursery, you'll remember my Carol Roeda board that I couldn't wait to put up with Austin's photos attached.

Here is a preview of what I changed it to after getting Austin's newborn photos back.

The beginning of this project came about after always seeing my Aunt Nancy's board at her house, which is probably three times the size that we are making. We went and bought a peice of sheet metal, which was hard to find at the hardware stores since they all seem to have a dent in them somewhere! We chose a great spot in our kitchen for it......(Jason already started putting up liquid nails before I could get a pic, you gotta watch him, he is so fast at projects!)

After putting on the liquid nails, we put the sheet on the wall and made sure it was level.

Next Jason cut some trim to frame it out. Good thing Jason taught me how to use the nailer back when we did the master closet because I got to help!

We painted the frame black after filling in the nail holes. The black ties in well with the bistro table that it sits above. After it was dry, I couldn't wait to add in some pictures and magnets. I received lots of these magnets for Christmas and since the board in Austin's room is pretty full, I just couldn't wait to have another spot to put them! This gives me a whole new reason to print more photos rather than just post them on facebook or store them on the computer. This is going to be a great way to decorate for an event at our house, or even for any holiday! I love it!! Thanks to the hubby, this project was completed in less than 2 hours.
