While online recently I've seen quite a few of these black wire memo boards, and I completely fell in love. What I didn't fall in love with, however, was the price. Urban Outfitters are currently selling one here for £60(!!?!) I don't know about you, but I certainly don't have a spare £60 for what is essentially a sheet of wire, no matter how cool and Tumblr it looks.
So, I took to doing it myself. Before I continue I should probably point out the fact that this probably doesn't even count as a DIY as all I did was hang the panel on the wall, but nonetheless, here goes. I found this panel on the Homebase for a very mere £8.49 and was more than ready to paint it/cut it to a better size. However, when it arrived it was ideal. On the website this is described as green, but it doesn't look very green to me? I'd initially planned on painting it black anyway, as I wanted it to match the general theme of my room. I've reorganised my room quite a lot recently and I haven't done an updated post, however here's the most recent if you were by any chance interested.
The 'Beyoutiful' hanging canvas I picked up in Primark a couple of weeks ago for a whopping £2 - amazing!! I'm not overly fussed about the slogan, I just really like the way it looks. As for the rest of the board; the four postcards were from Paperchase, and I had some photos printed online as I wanted to add a more personal touch. The S hooks (that I realise have nothing on yet) were from Tiger, and I just really like the way they look. Am I a saddo, probably. Do I care, not in the slightest.
