Clipboard Wall Art and Framed Thread Rack

I’ve arranged and rearranged the furniture in my office/studio/sewing room space about 15 times in the last year and a half.  I don’t know anything about feng shui, but something just wasn’t working for me.  I finally think I have it just the way I want it, so of course I needed to dress up the walls.

My first wall art project is a clipboard art collage.

These 6 inexpensive clipboards are from Amazon. I designed some printables with my favorite quotes and subway signs from my favorite cities to display on the clipboards.  I love the way they look, and what’s best is that I can update it is often as I want with new printables, photos, etc.

My next wall art project was super simple. I framed my thread rack!

My mother-in-law was giving away an old framed print of a bouquet of flowers.  The glass had broken ages ago, and the print was warped and scratched, but the frame still looked great!

I snatched it up right away, ditched the old print and painted it Annie Sloan Provence. It now hangs around my bare thread rack.

Here’s a peek into my sewing corner. The folding table on the left will be replaced at some point, and the wooden chair will be painted…eventually. But for now, this space suits me!
