Cork Board ~

DIY Project | Inspiration

I created this cork board for my recent sale, but decided to keep it for myself. The instant love connection was just too tight to let go!

Here was my inspiration photo:
Den / Home office. eclectic home office
from Houzz: Three Men and a Lady.

I can't seem to locate the before photo of the frame - but think dirty and gold, yes, very dirty and very gold. After I spray painted it white, I gathered some cork board and foam core I had on hand.

I simply cut the cork and foam core to size and glued them together. 

I then wrapped it in burlap and fell in love!

For the thumbtacks I glued these magnets ($2 each from Michaels) onto thumbtacks...fun and super easy!



Yep, I am lovin' it and so glad it kept it for myself!

I absolutely love this! I have a similar frame sitting in my garage that now has a purpose in life. I love the mixture of the shabby white & burlap. So glad to have found your blog. I would love it if you would share this at my linky party starting Wednesdays.
