We have quite a few inspiration boards at our house. Today I want to show you four boards which are in our guest room. I've posted about these before, but to quickly get you up to speed.....these were found objects, metal shelves to be exact. If you look closely you can see that they have small holes all over them....drainage perhaps? Air flow? Not a clue. Anyway, Braxton brought home 13 of these babies, and they have changed my life.
Because it was important that the finish be durable (these guys get plenty of use) we chose an oil based paint in a high gloss finish. I put them outside to dry (it was the middle of summer) which took a full four days! Oil paint is a pain in the ass, but totally worth it.
|Notice all the tiny holes? Huh?|
Lets talk magnets........
One of the things I love most about inspiration boards, is it gives me a reason to use these.....
|You know you saved all your old copies of Domino, am I right?|
Just because I think they're so beautiful, I wanted to show them naked. Inspiration board or art? Both, I'd say.
