I had one of those plain ol cork boards a friend was throwing away hanging up over my desk. I just kept thinking I wanted to do something to it to give it a little life, so I did.
There is the boring cork board in the back. Please excuse my lack of decorating...this was soon after we moved in.
I spray painted the brown wood, white, and covered the cork with fabric I had in my stash by hot gluing it down.
There, that's better!!!
