Saw It. Pinned It. Did It.

If you saw my finished Pinterest desk, you may have noticed the framed cork board. I wish I could say that I come up with this stuff on my own, but I don't. Here's was the inspiration curtesy of Pinterest.
Here's what you'll need.
- An old frame (I got mine at a yard sale for $1)
- Cork board
- Fabric
- Picture Hanging Equipment (Something like this)
- Staple Gun
Measure the frame to determine what size cork board you'll need to purchase (mine was 16x20).

If necessary, paint and distress your frame to your liking. Then take the cork board and fabric (for my frame one yard of fabric was more than enough) and pull the fabric taunt against the cork board. Flip the cork board over and use your staple gun to staple the excess fabric in place.

Place the cork board into the frame and then mount your picture hanging equipment. (That should consist of two saw brackets, one in each of the upper corners of the frame. Then simply strung the picture wire.) Trust me, it sounds more complicated than it is!

And you're done! A beautiful, custom cork board!
