When my boyfriend and I were looking at apartments (almost a year ago – time flies!), both a beach side location and a spare bedroom/office were at the top of our list. Being that we were on an entrepreneur’s/student’s budget, the first prevailed when we found a rare bright and airy loft in the South Bay without an extra room to call an office. As a person currently juggling several projects, I think it’s imperative to be organized. And as a designer, I’m always looking at aesthetically pleasing, inspirational and functional organization materials. I’ve been eying this bulletin board for a while now to serve as an inspiration board next to my desk, but the two size options didn’t quite work with the wall space that I have (and I’m not paying that kind of price for a bulletin board). I decided to take a shot at making my own instead (using this economical alternative) and to my surprise, it turned out just lovely. I can’t wait to hang it on our wall!
Being that I didn’t want the existing wood frame, I removed it using a hammer and screw driver to separate it at the corners. I ironed the fabric (oatmeal denim from JoAnn’s) pulled it tight and used a staple gun to hold it in place.
