Today’s art studio tip comes to you with a cottage-inspired look combined with crafty functionality. Take your regular cork board (I like to cover the cork in a beautiful paper before I start with all that push-pin action) and frame it with some vintage and rustic shutters. With the correct installation, you can hinge the shutters so they actually close shut OVER the cork board itself. This will help keep your art studio tidy and need. And when you have the shutters closed (or opened), remember that your shutter slots can be used to hold greeting cards, business cards, little quotes and sayings or any number of original ideas. You may want to invest in a really nice hardware latch set, or you may want to go as simple as a hook and eye. This brilliant, now-why-didn’t-I-think-of-that idea comes to you from the Spring/Summer issue of Cottage Style Magazine. Love the vibrant color!
