I have a bad habit of collecting supplies, starting a project and then not finishing it. This cork board is one of those projects.
Late this summer I painted a gold mirror that I shared here, that we are using in our entry hall. At the same time I painted a wobbly gold frame that I found for $1 at a garage sale. I spray painted the old frame white but I wasn't happy with the coverage so I used some homemade chalky paint for the final coat. I bought a roll of cork from Target for around $10, stuck the roll in our office armoire one day in a quick clean up and left it there. For about two months -there's that bad habit.
This weekend I decided I was tired of seeing the frame leaning up against the kitchen wall and got the supplies back out to finish it. I added the peel and stick cork to a foam core board backing (free from my niece.) I hammered in a saw tooth hanger and in about 15 minutes I had a completed cork board.
The fresh white paint really highlights the pretty floral and leaf details on the frame (and covers up a few chippy parts.) For photo purposes I hung the completed board on our unfinished fireplace wall. It measures a nice 30" x 20".
That's one more unfinished project checked off my list. Now I need to decide where to use it and hopefully it won't take me two months to decide! Are you a start and finish immediately type or are you like me and often drag projects out?
For a total of less than $11 (with leftover cork) I have a fresh new/vintage cork board.
I'm sharing this at the following parties...
