Inspired by a bulletin board I saw in either Pottery Barn or Ballard Designs and one that was in an article in Flea Market Style Magazine, I decided to give an old cork board of mine a makeover.
The cork on this board was messed up, because I had glued stuff to it and then removed it (along with some of the cork). So I covered it in burlap and made my very own inspiration board.

I added dimension by attaching 2 old towel bars to it. Now I can hang various trinkets as well as pin up clippings and ideas.

it's the perfect thing for my workroom

Memories and Ideas, I'm loving it.

Good job, Margo - I would certainly be inspired - I like the additional of the towel bar. You can hang all sorts of doodads from it.

I also love the wall color in your art room!

Dear Margo,
I went to the Corner today and got the new magazine, Flea Market Style and also a Bird of Paradise Circle E candle per your recommendation. The magazine is really great, I enjoyed it and the quality is very nice. The candle smells wonderful, like cherries. Just wanted you to know.
