Whilst running round after two bambinos I set up www.kryshees.com making childrens clothes, unique childrens accessories, wonderful nurser adornments and yummy mummy type products. I love things bright and bold and try to bring these into childrens items.

Carboot to Pinboard!!

Oh I do love a good rummage and even better a wonderful bargain, well who doesn't?

I found an old picture with a passable frame and removed said picture from the frame.

then used the picture to cut out the right sized cork board (donated by my mum!)

popped it into the frame ... I was going to paint it....but I kinda like it as it is

And then hung it up over by my sewing space!!! And filled it up with all those bits what really shouldn't be lying around.
Coupled with a to do list, calendar and some painted pegs glued on.

And voila! Result!

Pop over to Wendy's Handmade Monday for even more weekend craftings!!


  1. I love a bargain, it is a great idea to have a pin-board close by when working and even better when it is in a good sturdy frame.

  2. Fabulous - my kind of make! This is probably much better quality than one of the pinboards you could've bought in Tesco.
    Now there is no excuse not to be super-organised ;-)

  3. Yes much better and pretty to boot!! X

  4. Fab bit of upcycling there, i like it :)
