This is a precious idea that I completely intend to duplicate some day as a DIY project, but honestly, I don't have the $299.00 to spend on it. Can you believe the price of this baby, friends?!
This one seems simple and wouldn't lead you to believe a huge price tag was attached, right? Well, think again, it's currently on sale for $139.00. Wow, what a steal! (Please hear the sarcasm dripping from my words.)
Don't get me wrong, if you've got the budget to buy these, then I say "do it." They're cute and most likely really well made. But if you're in the same boat as me, don't have all that extra cash and know that your daughter's taste is going to change, then let me show you the alternative I came up with.
I used these cork trivets from IKEA...
And various shades of this paint from Hobby Lobby
To create this...
We added a few pieces of white trim on the top and side to frame it out.
After painting the background solid pink, I started nailing the trivets to the wall, one by one, until it was at a height I was comfortable with. After that, I painted the acrylic paint on random trivets to add some interest and bring in the other colors in the room. Easy and simple, and I promise it didn't cost anywhere close to the costly catalog finds.
Have you created your own version of a corkboard? I'd love to see your creations, send me a picture!
