Linen Inspiration Board

This is quick and relatively simple DIY for your Monday morning. I have two large museum style frames that a friend gave to me when she was moving with the hopes that I could find an interesting application for them. The results are in: A linen wrapped cork board.

For this project, you will need:

1). Museum style frame

2). Insulation board (less pricey than homasote with the same texture and thickness) I asked my local lumber store to precut mine with their table saw. I brought the measurements ahead with me.

3). Linen or fabric

4). Plenty of staples and staple gun

I wrapped the linen in a similar way that I would prepare a canvas, pulling all sides taut and stapling each side in a circular rotation. This is to ensure that no edges up to loose or to tight in the end and the fabric doesn’t look overly pulled to one side. The whole thing took about 1.5 hrs.

Lastly, I attached a wire to the back using a home hardware kit and it is ready to hang!

I will be offering it’s red and gold fraternal twin in my shop later this week!

Although I am tempted to do a chalk board in the other one, I think I will just stick with the look of the soft linen. Now, onto collect images for my new board! I’ll show you pics next week, plus I have garden inspired before and after in the studio later this week.

Duchess Chambre

Bedroom Inspiration

I created this sunny palette for a bedroom inspiration board. My own bedroom is one that I’d love to redecorate. Thus in the coming weeks, I’m going to be digging up ┬ádelicious wall paint colors and proposing different palettes. This one is so feminine and pretty. I also love the natural linen that I found from ThatFunkyBoutique’s shop on Etsy.

That awesome coffee filter garland is an awesome DIY project from the blog of Pamela Garrison. I’m thinking of making a similar holiday decoration from cupcake wrappers and twine. Will post pics once I’ve crafted it up.

Did you see the natural wood Matroyshka dolls? I love the color splash that the red headed dolls bring to the room. I do think that natural ones posses a certain je ne sais quoi. I read about them on Apartment Therapy, where they are meant to be a DIY project with paint!

I picture all bedding and curtains in soothing neutrals and soft linen…I’m going to call it ~the Duchess’ suite!
