Yes, I'm still working on finishing my office. I know! I can't believe it's taking so long either! But it's almost done I promise.
But in the mean time, I do have my inspiration boards to share with you.
I knew I wanted an inspiration board on the entire wall in my office. I was inspired by this board in the Urban Grace Interiors office:
Erika mentioned in her post that she used a 4' x 8' board. I really really wanted this size, but they are $220 and it was a little out of my price range.
Instead, I took out my trusty painters tape and taped out four 3' x 2' boards (which are much more budget friendly) on the wall to see if it would create a similar look (sorry, no picture of this). And luckily for me, it did! I purchased four of these boards at $19 each = $76, saving $140. I shipped site to store so shipping was free!
And here are my four inspiration boards:
This project was a very easy DIY. I used inexpensive linen-like cream fabric from Mary Jo's. I ordered and added antique brass nail heads from here (I found the link via Jenny). The tedious part was nailing in all those nail heads into four cork boards.
(See the three images of dresser styling? I just recently printed them out... they are from this post. Love it!)
I use the boards for both personal use (things that I think are pretty and inspiring) and professional use (fabric swatches and sketches for clients). I love being able to look up from my desk to reference swatches and stuff for my client's jobs.
Now hopefully the rest of the room will be finished soon :)
