For today’s Tutorial Tuesday project, I’d like to share this great tutorial from iHanna (Hanna also has an Etsy shop) on how to make a “clothes line” inspiration board using an an old frame. I thought this is very timely for all of you who are putting your inspiration boards together for the Spruce up your Place: Indie Home Decor Challenge. For some more inspiration for making your own inspiration board, visit the Inspiration Boards blog.
