Cork Topped Trunk

$0
Easy

I've had this trunk that my husband built in his highschool shop class since we got married. It's been great for storage, and I even painted it so it would fit our home decor. But, it took a beating from our kids, and eventually the hinges broke and the top cracked. So, one day by complete accident, it got a new top...an old window that I had turned into a cork board was placed on top of it just for a second, and when I looked at it from across the room, I knew it was meant to be...

    I love this idea!. Did you cut the corks in half lengthwise? On another note, I saw a picture on your blog of what look like pins with cushions underneath. Are those for chairs legs? Did you buy those like that? Or did you make them?
