However tidy you were, there’s always something on your desk that shouldn’t be there but from which you can’t dispose. Whether it is something important or something with emotional value, you feel uncomfortable to putt it anywhere else but in front of your eyes. In this case a cork-tile pinboard should do the trick.
You can buy this pinboard or just do it yourself, but then again you should already know I will always go for the second option. One model for a cork-tile pinboard is given by another hand made things lover. The author opted for a simple schematic diamond pinboard, very easy to make. For this model you will need cork tiles, a painter’s tape, white paint and a paint brush. Tape the bands on the board so you’ll create some diamond. Paint the remaining cork in white and waits until it dries. After that, peel the tape. The left model will be straight and smooth.
