Giant Inspiration Boards

Last week I spotted this oversized linen pin-board at Down East. It’s this same pin-board from Pottery Barn.  It was on sale for a great deal so I snatched it up. 
I’ve been gathering inspiration on how to style my new board. Here are a few of my favorite images.

I’m trying to decide if I want to add nailhead like this great board from Green Street. Love it!

    I love that idea and have been contemplating doing my own for a while is a personalised piece that is unique, decorative and utilitarian all at the same time. Great idea!

    yes, the nail head really… hits the nail on the head? 🙂

    and those giant scissors are great. i wish i could take them to the old set of willy wonka and clip down some giant gummy bears with them. 🙂
