This is pretty much what the cork board looked like when I started:
I sanded down the wooden frame a bit so that the spray paint would stick. Then I covered the cork part with recycled cardboard pieces and tape before spraying the frame with Krylon's Stainless Steel spray paint. I thought the stainless would look good because it would match our kitchen appliances. It actually looks more like a sparkly silver than stainless steel, but I really like it. After a few coats and some time to dry, I pulled all the tape off the cork and set the board in the office, where it sat for a few weeks while I procrastinated.
When I finally got my act together, I used rubber cement and coated both the cork and the backs of the scrap book pages I planned to use. Let the rubber cement dry, then positioned the pages where I wanted them and voila!
My nephews were over the day I hung the board and one of them drew me these Valentine's Day-inspired pictures! Is he good or what?!
Small project, but was still fun and will be a functional piece in the kitchen.
