Personalized Pin Board

Framed cork boards have been spotted all over Pinterest lately, inspiring us to create our own.  We love seeing all the unique takes on this office must have.  After removing the glass and backing, we cleaned off the frame and lightly sanded.  Then we spray painted the frame and patiently allowed it to dry completely (for this project, we used Krylon in Global Blue).  We then cut the cork board and fabric to size, using the frame’s original backing to measure.  We covered the cork with our bright floral fabric and carefully hot glued the edges. So as not leave all the excitement in the front of the board, we livened up the back by adding some fun contact paper before putting the frame back together. Add some cute pins and…ta-dah! we’ve given new life to a frame that was yearning for a dramatic change!
