I'm in the middle of a couple of projects. The first one is in a couple of separate pieces so I thought I'd show you what I've done so far. But first a little background. We've moved the office for our business into our home for the time being and we are using my future walk in closet for the space. Because this will be a bright airy closet sometime down the line not just an office I wanted it to look nice, not just four pale grey walls. (Actually Abalone Shell, lol.) I decided to stencil one of the walls but I'll show you that down the road. I was halfway finished when the move happened so I need to get back up and get it finished.
In the meantime, one of the "features" in the office/closet is the electrical panel that sits right in my face. I don't really want to have to look at it every minute I'm in there and since we cant really cover it that I figured a picture, cork board or something could go over it. Hey, it's removable right? We brought one large cork board from the old location. It's really pretty ugly too, so I decided to cover and frame it. I had hubby make a picture frame for me with left over moulding from the framing of the windows in the room and I had something special in mind for the covering of the board.
I decided that since the theme of the office is pretty much grey, from the walls and trim to the file cabinets and my desk that I needed something that had some color. I could have gone and picked up a pretty piece of material but I thought I'd use stuff from my stash and stencil some basic lightweight duck or canvas material that I'd picked up for some reason I just don't remember. I've been ordering stencils from Royal Design Studio for my walls and in my last order I received a cute little Blossom Flower Stencil. I decided to use that and my stash of Luminarte Silks make some beautiful material for covering the board.
