Pin-Spiration

Hello all!

If y’all are anything like me, you spend a lot of time on Pinterest! I had been making inspiration boards for years, you know, on actual cork boards but then Pinterest came along and kicked it up a notch!

I recently switched offices in my building and I wanted to do something different. I started to notice a theme– gold and girly.

Unfortunately I can’t paint my office wall with gold dots, so mine will have to be a little more low-key.

I started searching around my house for anything I could use. Before I moved in with my husband, I had lots of girly stuff. Since I got married I try not to suffocate my husband with pink all over our home. I actually found this Isaac Mizrahi print (several years old, possibly from Target) and this pink bow frame ( also several years old, a T.J. Maxx find)  in a storage box. They were both in my apartment at one time or another, so I was happy I could find a new use for them!

I picked up the larger gold frame at Target (for .98!!) and used it to frame a “Keep Calm” greeting card in gold, and the other gold frame (still in need of a photo) at Michael’s. Notepads and notecards in gold stripe are from the “One Spot” at Target.

I found the gold bucket and frames at Target (frames are several years old) and the silk flowers are from Michael’s.

The previous owner of my office left me with two big nails in the wall–no problem! The Eiffel Tower print is from my old college apartment and I actually made the gold dot print canvas. That is as close as I can get to having gold dots on my wall!

All in all I was pretty pleased with how my office turned out, and really happy that I could find a new use for some old items!!

Have a wonderful day everyone!
