Do-it-yourself decorative cork boards

Here are a few simple steps on how to decorate your cork board to act as an accent to your work space and maybe even boost your productivity. 

The first step is to get your hands on a cork board. It can be an existing one or you can simply buy a new one from your nearest bookstore.

Step 1: Cork board

The first step is to get your hands on a cork board. It can be an existing one or you can simply buy a new one from your nearest bookstore. 

Step 2: Fabric

The next step is to find some fabric that you like. It can be a plain colored one or it can have bold and funky prints. It’s up to you. The only thing is that it needs to be able to cover the whole surface of your cork board with some still left over to staple at the back. 

Step 3: Wrapping

Once you’ve settled on your fabric, go on and wrap it around your cork board. The best method to secure the fabric is by using a stapler and stapling the fabric at the back.

Step 4: Frame

This step is optional but if you want, you can go out and buy a frame that will fit your cork board. You can even have one custom made. This will definitely bring your cork board up to the next level. 

Step 5: Enjoy!

The final step is to simply hang your cork board onto the wall. Find some decorative push pins to go with it and there you go! A clever way to disguise your cork board and liven up your work area. - Michelle Alyssa Tiu
