Memory Board Re-do

I had this memory board that I got a second hand store a while ago that was itching for a update. 
I took the old ribbon and the buttons off but kept the blue fabric on since it was already padded. I used some black and white fabric that I had along with some ribbon and black buttons.
I stapled the fabric on and saved the corners last.  I added a larger ribbon to the back so that I could hand it and then tied a bow on.
It needed a personal touch so I used an old drawer knob that I had laying around, painted it black and hand painted the letter L on it.  I rubbed some antique stain on and then applied a coat of varnish.  I drilled the hole in the back of the knob a little bigger and then glued a nail in.
Here is the finished board ready for some pictures!
Much better than the boring blue that it used to be!
