DIY: Clipboard Makeover + 2015 Shoe Fashion Illustration Calendar GIVEAWAY! (Ends March 20th)

I’ve been on a Spring cleaning rampage! Opportunity has presented itself where I can focus a lot more on transforming my house into a dream home and being more committed to this blog. You probably already know that our home renovation is in full swing (for the past year).  Now that I can dedicate much more time to this process, I’ve decided to embark on an office makeover. I truly truly want the office of my dreams. I need a creative and clean space to work and think. I’ve been gathering ideas on Pinterest and pinning them onto my board, Workspace. Follow along HERE if this is also your current mission!

So… along this office makeover process, I will share snippets of small projects that are going to be incorporated into my ‘dream home office.’ You’ll get to see the small moving parts before the final reveal of the space.  What’s exciting and cool about it?! There will be GIVEAWAYS along the way. Which means, what I’m adding into my office could also be yours!!

This is the first official post (and makeover project + giveaway) for my office. I pride myself in simple, easy, and pretty makeover projects. Projects that anyone can do. Like ANYONE. Although welcome, no Martha Stewart personalities needed here. Complicated stuff makes me dizzy and I dislike being dizzy.

The one thing that I always have handy is a can of gold spray paint. I’ve been on this gold craze for the longest time and it ain’t stopping soon! Every office needs a calendar right? Yep. Which means you’ll probably need a clipboard for the calendar. I turned a cheap boring clipboard into a fancy schmancy one. The process? Spray paint it gold. That’s it.

  2. oh, goodness, Kellie! These are FANTASTIC. June and January are my favorites – the swirling ribbons make these so fun and exotic, even. I LOVE them, and thanks for bringing a talented Boston artist to your reader’s attention. I hope I win this calendar. Maybe it will even drive the remodel of my home office space ;). Thanks!!!
