Painted corkboard tutorial.

This is a super easy project to jazz up a corkboard and make it a feature in any room. A great meeting of form and function, a funky addition to any interior, and a great way to help you stay organised. This project has been kicking around our dear little house for more than a year, how shameful! I bought the boards when I saw them at Ikea for about $10 and have been meaning to pretty them up ever since.

Finally got around to it! It is a super simple project and it looks phenomenal. Now that it is done I wish I hadn't waited so long! Once you have the corkboards you need painter's tape, some paint in your choice of colours (I used house paint and acrylic paint), and paint brushes.

Use the painter's tape to create shapes on your noticeboard. Where you put the tape will remain bare cork. If you didn't want bare cork you could wait for each section to dry before taping off the next section. I chose a series of rectangles for these boards. It is easiest if you choose to have a border of cork around the outside edge as it means it is less hassle to paint the timber frame.

You will likely need at least 2 coats of each colour to get even coverage. The cork is quite absorbent and therefore will be very 'thirsty' on the first coat. With the timber frame you can either simply do one coat or two light coats to let the grain show through, or several coats to cover it completely. Once the paint is touch dry carefully peel off your painter's tape. It is more difficult to remove if you leave it on for a long time and you risk damaging the cork.

So there you have it. Takes a few hours total if you include drying time and you have some very funky, very customised corkboards that you can match to your interior. I used the same paint we used on the wall so that it would tie in nicely, as well as some super contrasting neon coral and a pop of bronze.

  5. When you consider how easy it used to be to Coach Factory Outlet find fake versions of extremely expensive bags on Canal Street (I remember it very Ralph Lauren Outlet distinctly from a trip to Tiffany And Co New York as a teenager–there Coach Factory Outlet was no pretense of Marc By Marc Jacobs secrecy), it seems as though Kate Spade Handbags the NYPD's Coach Outlet and luxury brands'combined efforts to curb counterfeiting may be paying dividends. If nothing else, counterfeiters are having to work harder to sell their wares.As for why the market has shifted to bags Marc Jacobs Outlet that retail for only a couple hundred dollars,Coach Factory Outlet Women's Wear Daily doesn't Gucci Outlet draw any Michael Kors Outlet conclusions, but I do have Michael Kors Outlet Online one piece of Coach Factory Outlet advice: contemporary Valentino Shoes bags go on Marc Jacobs Outlet sale regularly around Chi Flat Iron Official Website the Cheap Ray Ban Sunglasses Internet at reputable Tiffany And Co retailers, Beats By Dr Dre Headphones and when you consider the relatively Sac hermes small price Coach Factory Outlet difference Cheap Oakleys between Lunettes Vue Ray Ban buying a marked down contemporary Chi Flat Iron bag and picking up a fake on Coach Factory Outlet vacation, we'd suggest Hermes Bag you take the real Cheap Nike Air Max thing every time.Ray Ban Sunglasses

  6. Valentino Shoes On Sale certain way, the rise and tiffany Outlet continued popularity of bag Valentino Rockstud Shoes charms makes a lot of sense. Handbag are Burberry Outlet Online incredibly expensive, and although Coach Outlet Store Online most bag charms aren't exactly cheap, Marc Jacobs Handbags buying one Sac Chanel Blanc Pascher to put on a more model de Sac Chanel pas cher classic bag Christian Louboutin pumps in your arsenal is a lot more Tiffany Jewelry Outlet cost-effective Tiffany And Co than buying a Mocassin Sac Chanel whole novelty bag Coach Outlet that you may Valentino Shoes only use sporadically Coach Factory Outlet or for a single season. Also, a lot of Beats By Dr Dre bag charms are just super Michael Kors Outlet cute, full stop. Fall deliveries have True Religion Outlet Store Online brought out bag charms from Coach Outlet Store Online more brands Toms Shoes Outlet Online than ever, Tiffany And Co and Ralph Lauren Outlet whether you're in the market for a Coach Outlet Online silly Michael Kors Outlet fashion Michael Kors Outlet toy or a Christian Louboutin Shoes little bit of added luxury, Oakley Sunglasses there's probably something below Abercrombie And Fitch
