Happy New Year!!! Personally I am so glad that it is 2013. A new year means a fresh start. Anything can happen & creativity can strike at any moment. What better way to start the year than getting all of your ideas, notes & lists organized on a stylish Memo Board… (not just on Pinterest!) Here are a few alternates to the standard cork board that might have you rethinking your space.
Fill an ornate frame with a graphic fabric wrapped cork board & add a few strips of grosgrain ribbon. Depending on the fabric & the ribbon this look could go from Funky to Traditional in a flash.
Attaching a picture hook with a little glue to a vintage tray allows you to create a chic magnet board that would look amazing in a kitchen setting. Add a group of these together to create even more impact.
Painting stripes on a cork trivet create a stylish little accent. The unexpected shape adds interest as well.
Insert some round hooks haphazardly in the wall & thread some cord through the holes. This creates a graphic look perfect for any modern home.
An embroidery hoop acts as a great frame for this sweet version. How great would this be in a craft room?!?
Using a bed spring (or a crib spring) gives the clipboard a vintage industrial spin. Upcycling at it’s best!
Using the basic pinboard but in a larger scale gives the items attached the feel of artwork vs. bits of randomness.
Fill a frame of your choice with wine corks to add some pattern & texture to your board.
My personal pin board was updated with some simple nailhead trim & the addition of some glued on bulldog clips. This allows for the versatility to either pin or clip the items up. You don’t always want a hole in your things.
Do you use a real pin board to inspire or remind you? Or are you strictly a digital person? Would love to know!!
