Aren't these cute? I made them about a month ago for my newly painted laundry room (the color is Melted Butter by Behr.)
I got the frames for like 50 cents each at a thrift store. They were brown with cheesy cardboard pictures inside. I removed the pics, cleaned the frames and then painted them white.
I have had these self-adhesive cork rectangles laying around for ages and I never could bring myself to stick 'em to anything. So I painted them white and put them in the through the back of the frame - this did require a little bit of trimming with an exacto knife.
Then I found my cutest tacks and some postcards I like and stuck them up! I am pretty sure that those big white buttony-looking tacks are old upholstery tacks. I found them at a yard sale. Those cute little bird pin thingies I also scored at a yard sale. I wonder what they were originally for? They are weirdly heavy.
I want to make more of these mini cork boards! I have tons of old frames ready for some lovin- now I just gotta find more cork.
