Sharing is caring!

Hey all!!
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!!
I will share my little weekend project with you here today.
Few months ago…{maybe more than a few months} I posted my entry way update.
If you have missed it you can read more about it HERE.
One side of the wall  stayed unfinished.
 Originally I wanted an entry way that will have some organization options for all the papers that we bring home from  preschool and for all the incoming and outgoing mails.
I also wanted a message or pin board where I can display TO DO’s.
Here is a picture of the empty wall:
I found an old cork board up in the attic, and I turned it into a great and stylish pin board.
I used fabric to over the cork board { few months ago I picked  a couple yard out at IKEA AS IS section for 3.99–love these deals!!}
What I used for this project:
-old cork board
-hot glue gun
– white thumb tacks

Step by Step instructions:

1. Cut the fabric to cover the cork board.
2. Using hot glue gun – tie the fabric to the cork board. { make sure you iron the fabric before so it won’t be wrinkled}
3. Push the thumb tacks along the edges { I only used them in the corners} so the fabric would be nice and smooth .
…and voila… a stylish PIN board is done !
I attached a empty can to the corner of the pin board to hold pencils which I covered with matching color scrapbook paper.
What do you think..? Do you have an easy PIN board idea…?
Share it with me and stay tuned for the rest of this entry way wall project!

Thanks for dropping by today!

  1. Hi Aniko,
    This truly a great project and I have been looking for one like this for months! I was wondering what was the measurement of your fabric for the corkboard? And did you just pull the fabric to the back and hot glue it?
    Thank you!

    1. Erin, Thank you so much for the visit. I hope you will stay around and I will inspire you to create! Have a wonderful day!

  2. Hi! Your board is beautiful and I'm def going to give this idea a try. How did you stick the can to the board?

    1. Thanks Deysi,I drilled a little hole on the can and used a tiny screw to attach the can to the cork board.

  3. Great idea! I have an old cork board lying around that might just get a makeover. I'm pinning too.

  4. Okay, this is just too cute! Love the fabric you scored at IKEA!!

  5. First of all, I love your unique name! And you obviously have fantastic taste. I remember doing pin boards back in middle school, but they were nowhere near as nice as this. Plus, wrapping it around the frame is totally my style. Anything that makes life easier, right?!
