Do you need a tidy desk to work properly? I have the feeling that I’m much more productive if it’s all in its place. That doesn’t mean my desk should be empty but a little organization goes a long way.
You might remember this DIY pinboard I made just a few weeks ago. It’s now at my sister’s place. I gave it to her for her birthday. But I couldn’t brag about it here because she might have read it. Sharing stuff that’s supposed to be a present is quite tricky.
However I made the first one (it was already my second a-shaped pinboard) for Servus Magazin as part of the typography-themed DIY section together with the concrete tea coasters and the nail art sign. This is how I made the home office styling in accordance of their overall look and feel.
You might notice that it looks slightly different to the one I shared here. It’s more of a serif typography a.
I love mixing old and new together when it comes to decorating my home. I love the quality of antiques together with the simplicity of modern furniture and decoration.
What’s your kind of style? What does your desk look like? Share it on social media with the hashtag #lookatmydesk for me to see. I share the best ones here.

Now. Carry on!
How long did it take you?
Hi Sarah, do you mean making the pinboard? Or the styling? The pinboard took me about 4 hours – with cutting the wood the longest. the styling took me about 1 hour. 😉
