Easy

A simple corkboard would fulfill the needed function of a message board in an office I recently decorated, but would not compliment the style of the space. That was something I couldn’t stand to do when it would be the first thing seen as people walk in the door. A nice looking, stylish corkboard, however, increased dramatically in price. Too dramatically for my liking. Thank goodness for DIY!
Below you'll find out how I upgraded a boring store bought corkboard to make it more fitting for the beautiful space it would occupy. Of course, this is just a summary of steps; to see the full tutorial visit: http://charmingimperfections.com/Store+Bought+Corkboard+Gets+an+Affordable+DIY+Upgrade
