So we relocated offices at work & I FINALLY got my own!

Trouble is the walls were BARE & the budget for wall deco was zip zilch nada.... so... craftiness time.

I saw somewhere online (I'll add the link later to give the credit where its due!) to a project where some wonderful diva had taken foam board & covered them with fabric to make wall art.  Sounded AWESOME!  I have boocous of fabric in the stash & lil cash in the wallet so it was perfect.



The wall seems much cozier now!

Also had to add a touch of something to the wall directly behind me that you see as you walk in....



Cheap wooden stars from the sale section & some black paint... works for me!


I think its funny how everyone keeps coming it going ... THATS SO YOU!  Well duh.. its MY office finally isn't it?   Wink

That is so awesome! It's both personal...and professional...

I really like the fabric panels...I should think about doing something like that on some of my blank walls.

How did you attach the stars and the panels to the wall?

Just a dab of that blue wall putty stuff.  Cheap at JoAnns & it seems to be holding up just fine.  Hoping that when the time comes to take them down I can just roll the stuff off & not have to worry about holes in the walls or anything.  The panels are attached with the same stuff, just a bit more of it.

The fabric art is a great idea. I think many of us love fabric because of all the patterns. And fabric is art in it's own way.
