The Design Confidential Blank Wall Overhaul // Stick It Click It Swap It Out

This project is brought to you in partnership with Command™ Brand, and is a wonderful addition to my TDC World Headquarters makeover... 

Organization is high on my list of priorities as I overhaul my office - naturally. Attempting to keep the chaos at bay requires structure, a crazy amount of functionality, and daily action. But let's face it, those things a person may need to control the clutter and keep it easy to access but hidden from sight are typically not the cutest and if they are... they often cost a small fortune. I have found that I work best in a space that inspires me and where the functional pieces are also pretty so while my collection of handsome notebooks is officially out of control it seems that staying on task often means I need to see more of a visual than can be found on a small written paper. I'm sure you can see where this is heading...

Mood boards, editorial calendars, projects in progress and anything that inspires me at the moment... these things all greatly help me in my day to day productivity and if these can look good while doing their jobs, then all the better. When I saw the collection of Command Decór Damage-Free Wall Tiles, I knew they would be perfect for this area of my office. Since I have the attention span of a squirrel, and tend to be slightly overworked on occasion, when I feel the need I can simply swap out my functional Chalkboard Tiles for pretty Picture Frames or some good looking art. I love the freedom! The best part of these, aside from their benefit and beauty is quite literally how simple they are to put on the wall - without adding another hole that will later have to be filled.

Each tile comes with two Command Brand strips and a Riser. You will simply click one of your two strips in place and once it is firmly locked down you will remove the backing and stick it to your wall.

The riser has a built-in level and between the stick in place capability combined with the level, I don't which feature is better, but I'm glad it has both! In this business, I must hang and rehang so many things, all the time. It's daunting actually, but this was just easy and fast and now I am fairly certain that everything should be made with a built-in level and a sticky strip. Oh how my life would be so much easier!

Securing two tiles took a mere minute - no joke. Projects around here are never this easy so it's lovely to have a virtual day off and just sit back and let the riser do the work for me. Ridiculously I felt spoiled...

I primed my surface with standard chalk and then decided to make things pretty instead of focusing on work like I probably should be, eek!

Layer them, scatter them, arrange and rearrange them - you have the freedom to swap out your art whenever it strikes your fancy. With over 30 designs and sold exclusively at Amazon, they are easy to source and even easier to put on the wall - if that is even possible. Go forth, my friends and give that blank wall an overhaul! Banish the boring for good...
