Inspiration Wall

This 4'x5' section of wall in my studio was calling out for an inspiration board. I already have a large cork bulletin board hanging above the staircase and thought about hanging a second one here. However, I really needed something BIG, as well as the fact that I have a lot of clippings and ephemera I'd rather not put up with pins. The solution was to have a local sheet metal shop make a magnetic board out of painted steel. It was rather unwieldy to transport home and get up the stairs, but with a helper, easy to attach to the wall with screws (must secure into studs though). Now I have a very convenient spot for throwing up whatever is inspiring me at the moment.
