Once our cork collection had recovered from the Cupboard Doors project, I made this bulletin board for my wife Stephanie, to use in the office where she does her writing. She uses it to post plot and character notes and so on. Because we have belonged to a handful of wine clubs for several years, and because we have some favorite wines that we buy frequently in local stores, I was able to use similar corks to create many of the horizontal and vertical rows, creating another layer to the overall visual pattern of how the corks are placed. I glued the corks to the backing piece with Liquid Nails, starting in one outside corner and winding my way round and round until I got to the center. (BTW, if you use this approach/pattern, it doesn’t matter what size frame you use; you just have to improvise when you get to the center. If you lined up all your corks in the same direction, however, then the size of your frame could be an issue; you probably wouldn’t want to have a row in which the corks are cut lengthwise to fit in the final row.) I also made the frame for this project and painted it the same Behr “Chianti” color as in another wine cork project.
