How-To Make a GIANT Inspiration Board

HUGE, Giant Inspiration Board created by @Jenna_Burger,

As a visual person though, I feel there is nothing like seeing and holding a picture in hand.  I still buy and subscribe to magazines.  I still tear out pictures and reference them when looking for inspiration.

Central Command Center Inspiration_1a

If I've said it once, I've said it a gazzillion times alot...I'm always moving things around my house.  As I've mentioned in previous posts, my foyer has been making quite the transformation with repurposed items, along with the newly stenciled wall and glazed cabinet.  With a few moves, there was a wall in my kitchen/dining room that was all of a sudden left empty...
