I am trying to get my "stuff" organized. As you know, I like to make lists and I wanted a place to keep my tally of items we have run out of before I get around to making my grocery list. I also usually have some pile of papers that I need to scan, mail, or file and I needed a place to put them until I can complete the job. I decided to make my own covered cork board. I'm really not that crafty, but I am pleased with the way it turned out. I like the color scheme so much, I think I am going to use it in our half bathroom!
It was a very simple project. I purchased a cork board at Hobby Lobby when they were 50% off. I took it over to the fabric department, chose a pattern that I liked, and had the nice employee measure how much I needed. It was a very low-maintenance project. The only trouble I had was using the staple gun. We only have a heavy-duty gun, but I used it anyway. It was much more powerful than I needed, but it did the job. The whole time I was working on my project, I felt like I was on an episode of the old TLC series Trading Spaces. I always wanted to create my own decor! Success story #1.
