How to make a cork-tile pinboard

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.

You now have your own hand made pinboard. Hang it on the wall and decorate it with anything you want. Don’t forget to fix on it also the trinkets on your desk, as this was the original purpose of the board. You may also choose to paint your board in different colors or models, or you can draw a sketch or even glue some pictures or magazines. Anything you want will do, as this is a personal board, made to make you happy and enjoy working at your desk.{found on thehappyhomeblog}.
