Dimensions: Height: 25 inches, Width 21 inches, Thickness 2 inches; cloth-covered cork board dimensions 17.5 x 13.5 inches; Weight 5 pounds. This pretty piece could work equally well as a bulletin board in an office, a message center in a family room, or a place to pin jewelry in a bedroom, walk-in-closet, or dressing room. Two D-rings are mounted on the back, so all you need to hang it is a hammer and a couple of nails. $25.
A neighbor just a few houses up the street set a wicker-framed mirror out in the alley along with some other stuff. I immediately had the idea of converting it to a bulletin board and using the mirror in a different project. I freshened up the paint with one of my go-to colors, a khaki-pale green (Benjamin Moore satin “Seaspray”). I was thinking about where to buy some cork panels when by coincidence, just a few days, later I found four of them sitting on top of a trash can a few blocks away; don’t worry, they were quite clean! A sign from the upcycling gods. I cut them to size and doubled up the thickness to better accommodate standard push pins. I painted over the cork so the tan color would not show through the covering fabric, which I attached with some spray adhesive. I had a remnant just the right size leftover from several other projects in which I’ve used the same paint and fabric.
