I decided on Monday that I needed to freshen up the picture ledges from IKEA (called RIBBA) in my work studio for Spring so I did a little shuffle around. Now I’m displaying favorite books and prints, ribbons from House Doctor on wooden spools that I use frequently along with washi masking tape. I have more tape but store the extra rolls in the drawers of this cabinet so my shelves aren’t overloaded. I made the inspiration book you see by taping in papers and images from magazines that inspire me. Nothing complicated, just a casual display that is both pretty and practical in a corner of my work studio. Here are the results.
That pretty yellow butterfly on the doily and papers taped to my wall was made by Leslie Shewring. I made the paper flowers and used thumbtacks that I painted with nail polish as the centers (DIY here).
How do you display your pretty things in your work room?
