I discovered “Pinterest” !!!
I know … I know … everyone already knew about this amazing website, but I didn’t know it existed until only a couple of days ago.
So I went and created an account and I love it, I pinned a couple of pictures that caught my eye.
This website gave me the idea to create my own DIY inspiration cork board, in this board I will pin pictures that make me dream about my ideal and dreamed-up spaces.
So I gathered some things that I already had around the house and started my little project.
I used an old cork board, a wallpaper bought over a year ago (I had many intentions for this wallpaper), some wallpaper glue, a staple gun, staples and voilà in less than one hour I had a new cork board that I love.
This was my first time using wallpaper to cover anything, it wasn’t easy, I started by using glue and ended up using a staple gun to cover the board with the wallpaper (please remember, I am not handy around the house), it took me a while to learn how to place a wallpaper with patterns, I should have started my first wallpaper project with a simple pattern. When everything was stapled and in place, I was happy with the result.
Then I started pinning pages from home decor and fashion magazines to the board.
The goal of this exercise is and will be to pin pictures about pretty things and spaces that will inspire me to write my blog and share my ideas with you.
So this evening, I found a new spot for my new cork inspiration board, my little home office!
