Project Idea: Graphic Cork Bulletin Board

Rue

What do you do when you find yourself with a pile of plain cork trivets from IKEA? Turn them into a work of art — and a functional one, too.

In this tutorial, 20 trivets were masked, painted, and nailed to the wall to create a graphic wall element. While it's stylish enough to stand on its own (I can see this in white and gold, or even neon with bare cork), it works even better in a studio or office as a bulletin board for pinning photos and inspiration.

Check out Rue for the how-to!
