do you remember my grid shoe organiser from a few weeks back? well I mentioned I'd originally bought it for another purpose and this was it! I used to have a gallery wall of pictures around my desk but I grew tired of the layout and decided to give my home office a little makeover.

I'm a big believer that every office needs some kind of memo board and I wanted to create a feature out of mine. I thought the wire mesh would be perfect for the job plus it has an industrial feel that I'm really into right now..

you can buy brackets or hooks to hang it, you'll just need to drill a series of holes first- so grab a power drill and spirit level to make sure it's straight! the mesh itself is available over here.





it's a great way to display my to-do lists so helps to keep me organised, I can also use like a mood board to display things that inspire me. as it's metal it's easy peasy to attach images with magnets and bulldog clips!

add some hanging hooks and it would also double up as brilliant craft storage, you can hang everything from threads to scissors... have I sold you yet?

I'm really happy with how it looks, overall my desk is a lot less fussy than it was and it helps me focus when I get down to work... stalking kit harington on google image search, cough.

do you like my new look home office?

back soon
