So I was having fun visiting the Pottery Barn website.. of course getting inspiration for the nursery :) when I found these adorable pinboards (at a hefty price!) Which I found really funny since I've been working on one for the nursery using a giant number 2 for my twins! Just had to share... the animals range in size from about 30 to 36 inches but also range in price from $100 to $130! But why not get our unfinished shapes and do it yourself for a lot less money! Look how cute... and so easy to do. [EDIT: I had a couple people comment on how I'd cover these.. I would first cover the shape with cork.. thick enough that it will take a pushpin because the MDF we use for our shapes is really hard and probably won't take well to pushpins. I'd use an xacto knife to cut around the cork. Then depending on how the corners look when covering with the fabric I may even add a thin layer of batting and then cover with the fabric. When I'm done with my '2' I'll let you know my tips!] Such fun stuff! If you do one, please send me the link!
