Last month I painted my office, it needed a bit of spruce up. Even though it was painted a lighter color, the walls were dirty and it needed to be brighter. I spend a lot of time in this room and really wanted to be surrounded by something nice while I work.
I cut up some of my old calendars and purchased a few old botanical prints off Etsy.
I really wanted something that I could change frequently if I wanted to so no frames were used. The plan is to fill the wall around the corner.
Little metal clips were used to hang the prints, I pushed sewing pins to hang them on. Since none of the artwork is heavy they work very well.
Inspirational quotes are also being printed and added. I’ll probably change them out every now and then, perhaps for something seasonal.
Overall I’m happy with the way it’s turning out so far. It certainly makes the office bright and cheery, it will be especially nice during the long white winter! I usually don’t hang much stuff on the walls preferring more of a blank slate.
