Kitchen Bulletin Board

When we moved into our house here in TX, we knew we would need to buy a new fridge. We opted for a stainless steel front because we're trendy like that. Only problem was that once it was in our kitchen, we realized it isn't magnetic! Bummer! We like to put pictures of our friends and family on our fridge.

Hmmm. What to do? We decided to hang a bulletin board in our kitchen, but I thought a plain bulletin board would be a little boring, so my sister came up with the idea of covering it with fabric. We found this really pretty fabric at Hobby Lobby ON SALE (!!!)

Saucy, I totally though of you and your love for Marie Antoinette when I chose the fabric! Here it is from a wider shot.

Only problem I don't want to cover it up with photos! :)

Now I think you're going to have to come up with another way to deal with the pictures. This is WAY too pretty.

My dad got a stainless steel fridge, too, and bought some sort of magnetic thing that you put on the front so you can hang photos. They HATED it and it didn't work well and was ugly. So consider yourself warned on that one. They just hung a bunch of photos on a wall near the fridge instead. Not nearly as many, of course. Dang stainless fridges. ;)

Starshine - I didn't realize that Stainless wouldn't take magnet too. The SEARS people told me so I bought something that has the look of stainless but is still magnetic. I think the fancy cork board will be GREAT!LOVE the fabric.
