DIY Cork-board Super Makeover… New look, new life!

I love using cork-boards, it’s very useful but sometimes they are messy and boring {bad combination lol}. Mine was awful {could be worse I know} and it really needed some love so I decided to revamp it, do a Super Makeover on it and I’m sharing the process with you today =D

DIY Cork-board Super Makeover Tutorial

This is my before, not good, right?… yeah, I thought so too LOL. So here is why i felt I needed to put all my love on it and bring it to life with a whole new look!

What you need:

Also double sided tape

Cute buttons

some scrap-booking embellishments

I’m trying to keep this kind of tutorial {more pics, less words}, I took photos step by step to see if they speak for themselves with minimum explanation, please if something is not clear just leave it in the comments and I’ll fix it in no time!!!!



Do this on every side.




Glue the fabric to the frame with white glue or mod podge and then seal it.



Reenforce the corners with hot glue gun




I decorated it with cute buttons I chose.


I made some flower pins with this kind of pins.

Here it is, Tadaaaa!!!! Cute or what?… Now it is a decent and lovely Cork-board.



Now it’s time to put back the stuff and decorate with the embellishments =D

And this is how it looks on my work station!

What do you think??? Nice change right??? have you done this before????
