ah ha!




Late last night I had one of those aha! moments... i've been struggling with what to put on my walls... a huge painted canvas? a college of frames? simple trio of prints?... and then I realized i'm never going to decide on something because my inspiration changes so often. I have to be able to change things up.

So what about one giant inspiration board? A huge 4 x 12 ft cork board, I could cover with fabric to act as a canvas for everything and anything i'd like to pin up... magazine tears, fashion photos, etsy prints, my pics of Paris... one big ever-changing work of art. Now that would make for a great conversation piece! ... what do you think?

ah I think that's a great idea! I was thinking of making one of those myself! ..and it is so easy. Beautiful fabric is all you need to start this project!

I'm all for it! I turned a small wall in my studio into a giant inspiration board and that first photo was the reason!

I think that's the best idea I've heard all day. Inspiration boards are so personal and fun.

I know! I think i'm definitely going to. I just have to figure out how to get that huge cork board delivered up to the loft, lol.

aaaah, organized chaos--I LOVE it. I think I'm going to do this in my kitchen....

Rachel said...

where can u get a large board? i've searched, but can't find a large cork board that stands alone. will buying small cork squares to glue together be best?

Daniella said...

Hi Rachel - I found some large pieces here:

http://www.flex-a-chart.com/900_series_aluminum_bulletin.htm

One sheet size is 4' x 12'... but it's kind of expensive... i'm on the hunt for other suppliers, but I may put up 3 individual 3 x 4's, wrapped in fabric and lined up together...

If you find any better places let me know!

Daniella said...

Oh! And! I just found out you can purchase cork in rolls, meant for putting up on a wall or ceiling... or even as flooring... i'm looking into places like RONA and Home Depot.
