Today I’m celebrating the fact that I’ve been brave enough to do something that scares me and I’ve been putting off for ages – I’ve launched my very own brand new YouTube channel! So if you were a fan of the videos I created for the Heather At Home channel in collaboration with housetohome.co.uk, head right on over to subscribe to Heather’s Space, where in my first video I turn an old rusty iron gate into this moodboard for the previously blank wall in my office. Each Thursday I’ll share a new video, from my DIY projects at home, to craft tutorials, styling ideas, and any other adventures I’ve been having.
I spotted this old rusty iron gate in my friend Nellie’s garden. I immediately pictured it up on the wall in my office so I swiftly persuaded Nellie to let me buy it off her. It’s super-heavy so I was a bit concerned about how I’d get it mounted on the wall, but Ben came up with the idea of using heavy duty garage hooks, and they were the perfect solution (don’t use these if your wall is made from plasterboard or from old, crumbling plaster). The top rail of the gate simply slots into the hooks, and then I used magnets to display my favourite bits and bobs. I could also use the magnets to put up my giant safety pin (which I use to store my washi tape) and my florist’s scissors.
For a more in-depth look at this DIY moodboard, do have a gander at the video below and don’t forget to subscribe to catch all the exciting videos I plan to share.
