Inspiration Board

all images via weheartit


As you know, I've done a pretty good job on the clean out, but it's looking like it could be a few months before we can actually remodel the closet. (Price doing a remodel of a walk-in closet. It can get pricey if you want to do it right!) One of the plans for the remodeled closet is an inspiration board, but I figured I could go ahead and do that part now, so this past weekend I did. I can't wait to start tearing things out of all my magazines and hanging them up. Having the pictures right in front of me when I'm deciding what to wear should make figuring out outfits a lot easier.

Do you have an inspiration board in your room or closet?

I used to just mark magazines with the sponsored stickers they provided or ripped out the page and piled it somewhere. I hadn't thought of an inspiration board. I'd probably get in a lot of trouble if I did one because those mags made me shop a lot (which is why I discontinued subscriptions). That or my boys would probably stick their wish list on it as well.

I don't have an inspiration board, but damn do I need one...as well as a new closet. The one downstairs is not up here in this layout so right now my apartment looks like a re-run of my highschool bedroom: clothes on the floor, the beds, in the hallway...you name it. No wonder I've had a migraine for 4 days.

I really want one but have never had the space before - I'm hoping that will change when I move to me new place though.

I love the first one!
I do have an inspiration board on my wall, but I find its a bit hard to switch out pictures and things (I'm lazy), so I have a notebook I fill instead :)

Katie, I LOVE the idea of actually putting it up in your closet. I've made an inspiration board before but found that it didn't really help me if it was just sitting on my desk. Hanging it up in your closet is genius though...

My mom has an enormous inspiration board above her drafting table, and I used to love looking at it-it was like a window into her perspective that you might have known about otherwise! I keep my inspiration boards on my computer, but I love 'em just the same!

Ashley said...

I've always wanted an inspiration board! I sort of have an inspiration wall next to my bed, where I tape up pics from magazines that I find inspiring, but it's so much sloppier looking that an actual board!

I don't have one, but I freaking LOVE this idea. I think mine could get cluttered with TONS of stuff though.

Shea said...

That's a great idea! I wish my closet were big enough for an inspiration board! I'd really like to put one somewhere, but I'm having trouble coming up with a good spot.

Oh such classy inspiration boards! I need to get myself organized enough to have one.

Jenny said...

Oh yeah, I have one in my closet - couldn't live without it ;o) So much fun! Just go to my blog and search for inspiration and you will get my posts about mine (with pictures). Those boards and my infamous inspiration notebooks pretty much sum me up - ha!

The true use of speech is not so much to express our wants as to conceal them.

My inspiration board is the one on my blog header! It's up in my office, and even though it's been almost a year, I haven't yet wanted to change it! Still inspires me! But I will... soon. :)
