This is a super easy project that is versatile enough to fit the decor of any home! Use it as a place to display pictures, your to-do list, your shopping list, messages, awards from your child’s school etc. The possibilities are endless!
Frame: I got this one at a garage sale for 25 cents! Love the detail, hate the color!
Cork: You can buy these at any craft store for a few dollars
Spray Paint: I used Krylon’s DUAL Spray Paint in Ivory. The DUAL Spray Paint is a new product from Krylon that has primer and paint in one can. I am all about skipping the step of priming a project, especially one where I am trying to cover an ugly gold color with a light ivory!
Not only is this project budget-friendly, it is also done in 3 Easy Steps:
If you already like the color of your frame, consider yourself lucky and move on! I was the really unlucky one who painted her frame on the grass in the backyard then left it alone to dry, not realizing the sprinklers were going to go off just minutes after I left it alone! Luckily the AZ sun got to the paint pretty fast and the damage was minimal!
My cork was a 12×12, so I had to cut it to fit the opening of the 8×10 frame I had. I first traced it, then used an X-acto knife. I had scissors on hand, but didn’t end up using them.
Then, grab whatever items you want to display and tack them up. Hang your new pretty cork board on the wall or set it on top of an easel. I originally intended to have this on my desk to display my to do list, but I had an empty wall in our entry way that was calling this frame’s name. So I stuck a picture of my 3 kids and 1 of my ultrasound for this baby inside me and called it good! I love the way it looks!
