If you were following me last November, you might remember my insane attempt to complete 30 Pinterest projects in 30 days…
I did manage to complete the Challenge and in the end swore I would never do that again! But, like childbirth, a year later my memory of the stress has faded and all I remember is what a great feeling of accomplishment I had in the end.
So… when the idea struck me to do it again this October, (instead of having me committed) my friends and family all encouraged me to do it again.
Day 1: Decoupaged clipboardsI got my inspiration from the blog Martawrites.com for these decoupaged clipboards for my office:
Sorry, but it was dark by the time they dried enough to put them up for a photo
I started with plain clipboards from Staples:
Painted the edges with white craft paint:
And used ModgePodge to cover them with coordinating scrapbook paper:
Because of my CDO (it’s like OCD but all the letters are in alphabetical like they are supposed to be), I used my labelled to label the clipboards for Home, Work, Committees, and Brownies and now I have a place to put all the loose papers until I am ready to file them away!
I have had the clipboards in the closet for this project for at least two months… why is it that I need a crazy month-long challenge to actually DO this stuff??
I’m hoping to use this month to finally put some finishing touches on the office and maybe the laundry room.
If you’re following along this month… please let me know! Hit the comments below or follow my facebook page. You guys said you wanted me to do this again so don’t be afraid to show me some love, I’m going to need it!
