Obviously, I would not be able to find a similar bulletin board for a measly $1.00 , but I knew it wouldn't be hard to replicate for under $20.00. The backboard is cut from 1/2 inch birch plywood, and the "shelves" are made by gluing two wood moldings together, one an "L" shape and the other a 1/4 inch square molding strip.
I decided to space the display ledges further apart than on the original piece to provide a little more versatility, after I found these charming books at L&M Supply of all places!
I simply drilled holes in the trim and used wood screws to attach them to the backboard. Julie chose a weathered white finish, but can easily paint the piece a different color later. I couldn't just post a picture of the piece without accessorizing it, so I did a little shopping in our basement to find some appropriate items.
I didn't have any lullaby CD's, so I printed the do-re-mi letters on posterboard and inserted them into CD cases. The miniature books were given to me by my friend Margo, but I thought Julie would like them because she loves small things.
I got an unexpected day off today, so on to my next project! Only 9 more days 'till the baby shower, so I'm trying to finish everything this weekend. See everybody next Sunday!
Peace be with you.
