I found this cork board at Daiso for $1.50. It was exactly what I needed to organize my notes for the blog. However, it was really unattractive and boring. This quick and easy makeover added just enough pizzazz that it is now worthy of being displayed at my desk.
Paint entire cork board with a mix of teal and white paint. Do this in thin layers so that the cork board doesn’t warp.
Cover outside frame with washi tape.
Hammer thumb tacks around entire edge of frame to create a nail trim look.
