A quick project I wanted to mention for my studio space is my wood standing desk with casters.
I won’t be going into too much detail with how to make this, because it’s what I like to call a “quick and dirty” project. I had the need for a desk, so I found my wood (the table top is from wood I bought, and the legs and skirt I found), and quickly built a desk.
If I had it to do all over again, there are some things I would definitely do differently. However, being what it is, I am actually very surprised at how sturdy (I can actually stand on it, which scares my husband :|) and how pretty it looks.
I also grabbed double stick tape, measuring tape, a hand saw, and a pencil.
First, I cut tiny strips of the double stick tape and attached them in 3-5 places on the arrows, making sure to line the tape up on the shaft. If the arrow is straight, three pieces is great. If the arrow has a curve, I would use five.
Then I attached an arrow to the wall. This can be done taking measurements, but I kinda love leaving it to feeling and vibe here.
The first arrow ends up being your anchor point. Once attached, I used it to place the other arrows based on angle and space between each arrow.
And then go for it! I placed all the arrows that didn’t need to be cut first.
I used a hand saw to cut the arrows that went into or out of walls or went “through” the sockets. Make sure to cut these at an angle. Again, use double stick tape to adhere to wall.
Of course, I couldn’t do it without my trusted helper, Max.
And voilà! Real arrow wallpaper. Looks pretty great in pictures but even better in person! And the special effect created by the arrows “going into and coming out of the wall” really adds to the vibe. Hopefully this inspires you to get creative with some real arrow wallpaper designs of your own! And if you don’t have the time or desire to do it yourself, contact me and I can create one for you!
