Hello + Hello!
As many of you know I've been redoing my studio office here at home over the summer.
One of the things any good designer/crafter/creative type person should have is...
A SWATCH BOARD!
You need a place to hang your
visual "thoughts" & inspirations.
I frankly have been trying to do this whole studio on a pretty tight budget.
I decided to use simple and inexpensive bulletin boards to accomplish this.
When I hung them up...
I mean really "lacked" any sort of personality whatsoever.
...I decided to pull in some
I found the perfect color collection over on Etsy
I secretly loved that I could get an assortment of many different colors & patterns without having to purchase whole rolls of tape.
Seriously...who doesn't love those adorable little wooden spools?!?!
So, here's what I did:
I grabbed my trusty little sharp shears and went to work...
I randomly selected spools and cut off bits and pieces of tape
and adhered them to the frame of the bulletin board.
It's that easy!
I couldn't help but share this transformation with all of you...
Sometimes it's the simple things that matter the most.
I would reckon Washi Tape
( Japanese decorative paper tape)
to a cheap thrill.
You can easily reposition the tape if you get it crooked
(assuming there is some finish on the piece you're sticking it to)
as it's a bit like a Post-It note
I know this wasn't a very technical DIY...
Isn't it nice to find a simple tip from tme to time?
If you havn't invested in washi tape for yourself...
just head to
Pinterest and search for

you'll see just how wonderful this stuff is to work with!
