I always like to have a place that I can pin up my thoughts, inspiration and general images that just make me happy. It is also really helpful when I work to use cork boards to post up fabrics, patterns and furniture pieces to create a full on mood board. I usually think that cork boards are really boring and so today I am showing you how to easily (and I mean be-yond easily) spruce up your cork boards to personalise and turn them into awesome inspirational pieces.
Boring Cork Board —> Inspirational Mood Board
Take the boards outside, to your back yard, a park or any open field. Ideally you want to situate them higher up so you do not have to get on the ground (here I used cylinder blocks to support them)
Materials: Spray Paint (your color choice), gloves (this is optional but I wanted to use them) and small cork samples (also optional, but a great way to test your paint colors before spraying them directly onto the board)
Test out the colors on the cork samples. I used four colors because I wasn’t sure which to go with. I ended up keeping with the black, white and silver spray paint as I want the imagery on the boards to really stand out. (I think some neon boards though would look really fantastic also)Start to spray the board and give them 2-3 coats each. Leave them to dry overnight.
