Several months ago, I had an inexpensive shelving unit made to provide additional storage in my office. I had my handyman leave it unfinished and my seamstress made a table cover out of this John Robshaw fabric to hide all of my
crap stuff. It also now serves as printer/copy/fax central. I love the fact that everything is concealed!!!
I was also in need of a larger inspiration board so I can layout fabrics, samples, paint chips, etc. I wanted the background to be white and didn’t want the brown cork to show through, so I covered the cork board with blackout lining. I also knew that I wanted to hang the cork board with rope so I spent some time browsing the rope aisle at Home Depot and this is what I came up with……
I used the rope clamps to make the loops, attached the rope binding hooks to the back of the cork board and simply hooked the cork board through the rope loops. To attach it to the ceiling, I did the same thing with the rope clamps (made loops) but used the utility hooks and screwed them into the ceiling. Since this hangs in front of a closet that houses the A/C handler, we need to be able to access it every now and then and the hooks make it easy to remove as needed.
Here is a look at my new chair slipcovers from Ballard’s. My “plan” is to have them monogrammed with my logo. Maybe I should set a deadline to have that done, because you know what happens once things are in place. Things never get finished!
And here are all of my newly folded fabrics. Much easier to find what I’m looking for!
Have you tackled any good DIY projects lately? I’d love to share it here on the blog, send me your picture and a brief description to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a great day friends.
