It has been awhile! School has been crazy busy so I hadn't had much time to blog. Actually I'm supposed to be learning right now.. Time to take a break! ;)
little storage unit is also still standing!)
When I visited the hardware store I picked up some nice wallpaper samples. I didn't had a purpose for them until I wanted to create a pin board for my empty wall. The samples together make a cute and colorful surface for a pin board! I used foam because I needed a super lightweight material since I would hang it on the same wire as my photo ropes.
- foam (I used 4cm thick foam I had lying around)
- wallpaper samples
- screws (or screw hooks))
- tape (I didn't used the ducttape, I ended up using some electrician tape)
- lining material (not shown. I used cork, but you can use cardboard or maybe even fabric)
Once you're happy with the arrangement, mark the size on your foam. If you want to remember the exact arrangement of you samples, you can take a picture for reference later on.
Use your utility knife and a ruler to cut out the foam. This kind of material can be quite annoying. Best way is to cut it multiple times in the same place instead of trying to cut through it at once.
And this is the end result ^_^
Hope your enjoyed this and inspired you to create an easy (and lightweight!) pin board!
You just have to add some colorful pins and your most inspirational pictures and quotes :)
