A big project I want to complete before baby (nothing like 7 days left to get you motivated) is a complete overhaul of my office. When we moved last year, I had done nothing with the space I worked in, which is a huge source of anxiety and makes projects move slower because I cannot find anything!
(Does anyone else NOT post tutorials after doing them? Just me? I will blame pregnancy brain, then no sleep brain from new baby.)
I decided I needed a pegboard to help me organize the office and it was a no brainer that I would paint it and add some much needed A Bubbly Life flair. I painted a peg board with a heart for my bedroom and loved the look- I decided to go with an ombre geometric look for the office.
How to Design An Ombre Geometric Peg Board
Sheet of cardstock paper (or any weighted paper) or cardboard
* It is very easy to pick your color palette at the craft store. All colors are lined up from lightest to darkest- pick the amount of colors you want (I chose 4) from the line up.
Measure the length of your peg board and decide on number of triangles.
I wanted 3 inch triangles so I had room for five lines of triangles (smaller ones would be cute!)
Cut out a triangle in your desired size using the ruler and cardboard to make your stencil.
Begin painting a row at a time. I used 5 colors for my ombré look.
Once you paint a row remove tape while still wet in direction of paint.
Continue until all rows are complete and once it is dry, you are ready to hang!
I also had the hooks spray painted gold versus keeping them silver.
My office space is white with pops of color. I love the white, streamlined look for organization and the pops of color to inspire creativity.
Before A Bubbly Life, I worked at home for years in a non-creative career, so I still refer to my room as my office, I guess it should be called the craft room now? Or maybe my studio? (that sounds kindof cool 😉
A couple separate looks in these photos because I took some this week and others 5 months ago…
The mint green honeycomb one is exactly the way the board looks now- I just bought that color honeycomb for Kalia’s party and I love it!
Organizing my office is so important and the pegboard has made such a difference. I usually make a mess when crafting and clean up is put to the side as soon as my adorable daughters need me. I love having the pegboard- it is the one spot that is always organized. The honeycomb shots were not purposely styled- it is how it looks pretty much everyday (except my double sided tape is missing, I usually have like 3 rolls on it, but I am using them for a project)
I am hoping for a full reveal of my space soon, but I have a couple more additions to make. My gallery wall is lacking, otherwise the room is completed- and has been for 5 months- yeay me!
