Behind The Scenes Of Littlestarblog – My Workspace Makeover !

Today I would like to share something special with you and take you behind the scenes of Littlestarblog and give you a sneak peak at my new and freshly revamped workspace!

Have you ever wondered how we lifestyle bloggers live and where we work ? Well,  I am sure you had something glamorous in mind but the truth is, I just moved to a new city and apartment last summer and mainly focused on the kids’ room and our living space… There are just never enough hours in the day and somehow I never got around to creating a workspace for myself ! Believe it or not but up until now, I used to blog from the kitchen counter, the dining table, the sofa, my bed or the cozy cafe next door…

As you might have read here, back in December I attended Holly Becker’s Blogging Your Way Studio workshop and seeing where she works and how she decorates and styles even the tiniest of corners really inspired me to finally get started on my own creative space !

Tour my lovely new workspace below and find out how I made my fabric covered pin boards…

And here is my DIY pin board  – all you need is some fabric, thin plywood, cork tiles,  wood glue, a staple gun and staples. I wanted to make two identical boards instead of one so I can easily rearrange them in the future or even use them individually. I picked up all of the supplies at my local hardware store and had them cut the plywood and the cork to the size I had in mind.

Back at home, I first glued the cork to the plywood (using LOTS and LOTS of wood glue) and let it dry completely. The next step was covering the new cork pin board in fabric. I placed the board (cork side down) on the fabric and started stapling it to the back of the board on one of the longer sides while making sure that there were no wrinkles or folds in the fabric and that it was pulled really tight over the board. This was sooo much easier than I had anticipated and I am really happy with the results !!! 😉

As you can see, my neon green and blue colored Ikea pillow was the inspiration for decorating my brand new, hand made pin boards and it really set the tone and determined the color scheme ! At any given time, I have tons and tons of interior magazines lying around the house and this was a very welcome (mostly for my husband though) opportunity to get rid of some of them (…and make room for new ones, of course!). I spend a few very happy hours cutting out some inspirational pages, adding some personal items and mixing and matching it all to create my personal mood boards – and here they are !

One of them is just for me and the other one is child-related and for Littlestarblog – can you guess which is which ? Let me know what you think in the comment section below… 😉

    Hej Brigee, (yes I use your blogger name)
    I really like your DIY boards, maybe I will do the same for my room in Stockholm to add some personal flair there! As for my taste I will most likely use some kind of green for the fabric. But it seems to be a easy thing to do.
    Thanks for the idea!
    Yours,
    Lisa
