DIY Idea: Make an Inspiration Board

DIY Idea: Make an Inspiration Board

Pinterest is all the rage right now, but in my house that doesn't mean that my physical inspiration board it any less important. Check out this moodboard tutorial which uses repurposed materials.

Alicia from The unEMPLOYMENT Project put together an easy tutorial that uses old curtain rods and t-pins:

As Alicia writes:

The other day I looked at my up-and-coming office wall and thought, 'Geeze this wall looks boring!' This was not going to be the easiest of fixes because I have put myself on a rather extreme budget due to the fact that I am clearly not the main bread-winner of my relationship with T. I looked around at the things I had in an unpacked box and decided that a metallic surface would serve best in this location. I was about to dismiss the longing for a inspirational pin up space when I suddenly remembered a piece of discarded window treatment left by the previous homeowner. It was 90% of a curtain hanger as it was missing one side of the attachment apparatus to the wall leaving the curtain hanger unusable, at least until my brain got a hold of it!
