Homemade Jute Cork board and pins
Another project for my new room! I was bored of the old office style thin wooden framed cork boards I had and they needed replacing anyway. I wanted my new board to be different and I love the look of jute. I looked at buying one with a nice frame but they were expensive-and when decorating every penny matters.
So I bought a large silver photo frame I liked and took it apart. I discarded the glass and the back of the frame.
I had two sheets of cork and a layer of jute. I placed these in the frame, with mod podge between the layers and lastly added thick corrugated cardboard to the back. We then affixed it to the wall with screws.
Next I made my own decorative pins with attractive buttons I had in my stash. That way I get to keep them but for a useful purpose instead of them sitting in tins!
