I had a frame lying around that I had picked up at Michaels for $8 on clearance and a roll of cork I had from Staples so I decided to see if I could come up with a creative way to make a DIY cork board for my home office.
I headed to Value Village with the initial plan to find some fun fabric when I spotted a lace like table clothe for $2.99 I grabbed it and headed home to make magic.... or so I hoped.
Foam board or tri-fold project board
Lace or fabric
I started by cutting the project board i had to size, I then placed the roll of cork on top cut it to size and stapled it to the board. I measured and cut the lace cloth slightly bigger than the board, wrapped it around and tapped it to the back of the board tightly. Then I added a line of strong glue on the inside of the frame and popped the lace covered board into place. I applied some heavy books on top and let it dry for 24 hours.
Voila my DIY Lace Cork Board!
I added some inspiration pics with some button thumb tacks I found at the dollar store and its now ready to be hung :)
It was pretty simple but a bit time consuming, although totally worth it in the end.
What do you think?
