Organize in style with these DIY Painted Cork Boards!

I know, I know, I haven’t been on here as much as of late, but life is getting really. damn. busy. My head is in the wedding clouds, then it was in the migraine cloud, trying to get my Etsy shop together cloud, and of course, back to the wedding cloud. I have a feeling my presence on here is going to be more sporadic as time goes on, and for that I do apologize. However, that does mean LOTS AND LOTS of wedding DIY posts later on! Good trade off, no?

Anyways – on to today’s post! My craft ‘nook’ is getting a makeover. Yes, nook. It’s bigger than a closet, but not so much a room. It’s an old balcony that was turned into an extra room in my apartment. Weird, yes. An awesome place to craft? Yes. So nook it is. Anyways, I’ve been working hard at clearing it out these last few weeks and really personalizing it. Slowly but surely it’s all coming together. This post is the first of many more to come in the ‘craft nook transformation’.  First up – my DIY Painted Cork Boards.

What I used:

  • Six square cork boards – from the dollar store
  • Masking tape
  • Paint sponges
  • Different coloured acrylic paints

How I made it:

First I taped off sections of the cork boards – some diagonal, some horizontal.

The, you guessed it, I painted half of each cork board in different colours. I liked the idea of leaving half of each board ‘au naturel’.

Once they were dried, I hung them 3 in a row, with the horizontally-painted ones in the middle and the diagonal ones on the sides!

I am really happy with the way these turned out — and super easy! With these right beside my desk, they are perfect to start hanging some pictures, ideas, notes and any other form of inspiration. Also… what do you think of the colour scheme? My inspiration? A peacock feather, minus the green and adding the white. More of ‘the craft nook’ to come
