Happy Thursday! Hope everyone is having a great week!
This week marks Restyle It Wright’s one month Blogiversary! What a busy month it’s been!

6. Purchase some thumb tacks you like or grab some if you have them lying around. Depending on the size of your board will determine how many you’ll need. I had these sweet gold ones left over from a memo board I did earlier this year so that’s what I used. (Man, I’m really starting to look like a hoarder!) There are about 25 in a box and for a board this size I used 26 pins. The left over pins are used to pin the items you want displayed onto the board.
