Old Drawer Turned Photo Display

Soprano's room redo is coming along. We created art gallery shelves and artwork, hung embroidery hoops, added a cushy rug, and made artwork for above her bed out of an old pallet.

The latest decor project was to create a display for her memorabilia and keepsake things that she likes to look at. She likes to get postcards when we travel and enjoys receiving them from family members. She used to have a French memo board but it didn't work with her new color scheme. I went digging on Pinterest for ideas and merged a few together to come up with this.

We got a drawer from our local Habitat Re-Store for only $3. I painted the sides and top with the same paint we used on her trim. To dress up the back, I covered a piece of foam core (from Michael's) with a thin layer of craft batting. Then I took this French Script fabric (from JoAnn's) and layered it over the batting. I wrapped it around the edges and taped it on to the back. It fit snugly so I didn't tape or glue the fabric board at all; just stuffed it in. This way we can change it out down the road if we want.
Then Bass took some little eye hooks and screwed them into the sides so he could attach metal wire to them. I spray painted mini clothespins with yellow spray paint (that I used on her picture frames) which clip all her memories to the wires.

Now it hangs above her desk.One more project done!
