Shabby Chic Inspiration Board

A while back when I was moving into my apartment, my clumsy self stepped right on top of my Ikea mirror(pictured below).  Shattered glass EVERYWHERE and of course the devastating realization of 7 years bad luck. (yes, I am superstitious)

I really enjoyed the frame and thought it fit in with the shabby chic theme of my bedroom (which I will post about soon) so I painted the black metal with a rough coat of white paint.

The frame sat in my room for a while on the floor looking kind of sad when an idea struck me while I was at a tag sale.  I found a cork board for a buck and some pink fabric to cover it for 2 dollars.  I cut the cork to fit into the frame with some heavy duty clippers and then covered the cork board with the cloth by stapling and hot gluing it on.

Once the cork was in place I started pinning everything on like a real life Shabby Chic Pinterest Board!  Can you follow my Shabby Chic Pinterest Board here.

I LOVE Romantic Country Magazine as an inspiration for all my decor, so I clipped some images from there.  I also included a lot of my old vintage jewelry that I picked up at flea markets and tag sales.  My favorite is the perfume bottle necklace – FOUR DOLLARS for this gem – completely obsessed with it.
