Fixing up a plain old cork board

Tonight I got around to a project that I've wanted to do for awhile. I have a cork board on the wall in Paisley's room that I hang her bows on and keep special cards on. I've wanted to paint it and decorate it with the pretty ribbon that was on my diaper cake at my baby shower.
After Paisley was in bed, I headed out to the garage and opened up the can of paint that I used when I painted her shelf.  Thankfully, the paint was still good and not dried up! I guess I sealed the can tight enough.

I painted the cork board.
Before:

After:
I painted some plain old thumb tacks to help hold the ribbon in place:
I cut the ribbon that was used on my diaper cake at the shower (thanks Nathalie!!!) and glued it down with a hot glue gun. Then I used the end of a pair of scissors to push the edge of the ribbon under the wooden boarder of the cork board. I used the painted push pins to fasten it down extra well on the ends, plus it's just cute.

All done!
I put everything back on it and I think it still looks pretty cute. I love having a place in her room where I can keep special cards, pictures and accessories. So fun!
