DIY Office Decor


I finally knocked out another room of Matt’s office over the weekend – the reception area, for under $70!

Step 1: I picked up 3 silver (20"x28") Ribba frames from Ikea at $19.99 each.


Step 2: I ordered 3 sheets of Royal Blue Banana Fiber Paper {thick chunks and strands of banana bark on lightweight kozo sheets} from Paper Mojo at $2.85 each, plus shipping. 


Step 3: Carefully add your paper to the frame. I seriously spent over an hour on this step. Every time I finished closing all the metal tabs over the cardboard, I'd flip it over to find a piece of Charlie's fur inside the glass. It was super frustrating and I ended up leaving a few hairs in the frame.


Step 4: Hang your frames!

 Ta-da! 

The frames made a huge impact on the wall! Oh, and the business owner was happy too!

    We used Ribba frames for our gallery wall and I loved how it turned out! Oh, but those darn metal tabs are a pain... lol
