Crossed the Memo Board off the "Must Do" Memo!

Life seems to be moving at the speed of lightning lately - I can't seem to get much of anything done beyond the basics.  I had a long list of to do's last weekend, and yet, only a few things got done.  This weekend I've made a little more progress on that list.  One task was to finish this memo board for my friend, Amanda.  

She has an electrical box in an unsightly spot, but due to Chicago code, it had to stay.  But Chicago code (as far as we know) doesn't say anything about covering up the ugly box!  You've got to think outside the box sometimes to turn an apartment or condo into a home!!  We bought an inexpensive art canvas measured just the right size, selected fabrics that match her decor and I set to work with my staple gun.  Today I stapled on the ribbon from the backside, made fabric-covered buttons and sewed them on - voila (or "wala" as I prefer to say...)!
