DIY - Pretty Cork Board on a budget!

I picked up this old framed picture at a local thrift store for 4 bucks! The picture itself had a hole in it and there was no glass. But that was fine because I was only interested in the frame. Next I found the cork board at a church rummage sale for only $3. Both the frame and the cork board were in excellent condition!

I took the picture out, cleaned the frame with a damp cloth. Next I added a fresh coat of white spray paint. Used the picture that I had removed as a template to cut the cork down to size. A box cutter razor blade worked perfectly! And placed the cork board inside the frame. I didn't like the stark white look of the newly painted frame so......

.......I got out the sand paper and scuffed it up!

Isn't it pretty! I just can't stop looking at it here in my office! And it is fairly large at about 32 x 26 inches. And very practical! I still have enough cork board to make another! Yay!!!
