A really easy and effective DIY today to make your office, kitchen , bedroom or just hallway look awesome and organised. As you know my new office is still looking fab and is surprisingly still clean with no paint spilled, but what I needed was to re-invent my old plain cork-board. Honestly, I am so impressed (not to toot my own horn) haha with how this turned out, and so cheap too!!
What you need:
Selection of paints ( I used tester pots so it didn’t cost a fortune)
So firstly I picked a colour for the background and one for the border, and painted the cork-board and the border, using those colours. I picked a grey and like a pinkish purple.
After I waited for it to dry I separated sections using thin masking tape, to make like a mosaic/stained glass effect.
I then spent a while..maybe like an hour, I’m clearly indecisive, to pick a few colours. I would recommend not picking more then 5 colours, I feel that maybe I should have left one off, but still I love the outcome. I also left a few with the original background colour too.
Then it’s simple just paint different sections different colours and make sure you wait for it to dry before taking the masking tape off! Honestly no matter how much you want to peak, wait til it’s bone dry.
Then I just touched up some of the edges up..and there you have it!
Simple, and a great way to give your cork-board a makeover. Then you just pin your inspiration and cute paper finds!!
Hope you like it!!
