Tired of being cooped up in the house? Why not use these last few weeks of winter to your advantage and finish up that project that you’ve been putting off? Maybe you are redecorating a room in your home or need to put the finishing touches on something that you started months ago…all you need is a little help to get started!
Create your own inspiration wall and immerse yourself in whatever makes your heart sing–photos, color palettes, quotes–they can all help awaken your senses, get you to the finish line, improve your focus or simply establish a lovely mood.
Paint one of your walls with chalkboard paint and voila!–you’ve created a very cool space to display your quotes, memories, and inspiration. Check out the Lil Blue Boo Blog to get the full instructions.
Not quite ready to commit to a whole wall? Start on a smaller scale with this Mood Board that we found on A Beautiful Mess. Gather up your goodies and adhere them to the board with thumbtacks or washi tape (we love that this one is also portable!)
Give new life to an old corkboard and create a snazzy new Fabric Covered Inspiration Board (just right for a smaller space). You’ll find the easy directions for making these on Design Improvised.
Believe it or not, this ingenious inspiration wall is constructed from galvanized metal sheets and framed around the edges (that elegant design on the frame edge is damask packing tape–love it!). Find out how to make your very own over on Rhonna Designs.
This setup is super easy…just grab a stack of ordinary clipboards on your next shopping trip and you’re good to go! Arrange them on your wall in whatever way suits your fancy and you’re ready to start your collection of dreamy doo-dads. Take a look at this idea and other useful tips over on The Fiction We Live.
While all of these ideas are pretty budget friendly…Jill from One Good Thing can show you how to create this Perpetual Inspiration Wall for under $50. This version makes it very easy to change with the season, your mood, or your current obsession.
