In case you couldn’t tell from Tuesday’s post, I have rearranged my office furniture…again. Click here to see how it used to look.  Now I have a great wall space where I can display pictures, art work and my inspiration board. The wall currently looks like this…

The look I’m going for is more of a library feel, something like this…

 
The two items hanging on the wall so far are my business license (required by Georgia law to display) and a picture drawn and framed by my late Grandmother.  The other print I want to display is this one below I (and 50 other people) received as a gift from Eddie Ross.

I’ve been scouting shops for a preframed bulletin/message board and found two contenders: a $39.99 board from HomeGoods and a $399 board from Ballard Designs. The former option is too small, the latter is too expensive!  While out today I stopped by a Goodwill and found the perfect board at the perfect price, $7.00!!  It wasn’t framed, but that’s an easy fix.  I’ll be sure to post a DIY/How-To.

Last weekend I stopped into Savvy Snoot and found this picture (below) in the discount room. The frame needed a little glam so I bought this paint pen from Michaels to embellish it a bit.

Here’s a closer look…

I’m not crazy about the autumn leaf print, but it’ll be fine for now.  I’ve secured two appointments this weekend, (yes!!) but I still hope to get a few personal projects completed and to share with you by next week…Chat soon!
