YAY, I FINALLY FOUND A ROLL OF CORK FOR ONLY $10
A BEFORE OF JUST THE FRAME
ANOTHER BEFORE SHOT
AND ITS DONE - NOW AN INSPIRATION BOARD
STARTED ADDING SOME INSPIRING (TO ME) THINGS. MORE TO COME...
When I moved into my new small space, I definitely knew that my new dining room-turned-office would have a special place for an inspiration board. I've never had a functioning visual board in my space before, opting for spiral bound sketchbooks instead. This new space was perfect for a visual space and instead of buying a boring old bulletin board, I decided to make my own for $35.
I bought the biggie RIBBA frame at Ikea for $25, a pretty good deal for such a large frame. After stopping in at a few stores, I finally found exactly what I need, a roll of cork. (That's the other $10) Once home, I taped down one end to the matte and cut to size and -voila - a brand new and pretty looking inspiration board. Since I just moved in, I am still working on filling it up but I have tons and tons of inspiration waiting in my notebooks, like the blurb from an old magazine that got me going in design in the first place (yes, I actually kept this!)
