DIY Cork Board

As you may know, I have been on a roll crafting for my new office. My most recent project was beautifying the massive 4’x5′ cork board hanging on my wall.


I love how it turned out. In fact, lots of folks on my floor have stopped by and commented on how happy it makes my office.


Here’s how it all went down…

 Cover your cork board with fabric, leaving several extra inches to wrap around.

Start pushing in your tacks. This is the hardest part, so you may want to have your husband do it for you. Matt’s thumb ached for days after pushing in 350 tacks – that’s true love, friends. 

Once all your tacks are in, flip your board over and staple the fabric down on the back side.

 Add pretty push pins and hang!

TA-DA! Hope I can keep it pretty as it fills up with work stuff!
