{DIY} Project - Custom Corkboard

At our household, we receive a ridiculous amount of mail. I mean, its obsurd. I'd say about 90% of it is JUNK! I wish I could say that I am so organized with it, and that every day I take the time to sort through it all, but that just doesn't happen. It gets piled up in our "mail bowl" and important things dissapear to the bottom.

Well, what is my solution? A corkboard where we can put all of our important documents! So off I went to the store in search. What did I find? Your typical, brown on brown corkboards. I mean, who wants to put up in their house that looks like it should belong in an office? Not me! So here is what I did:

First, painted the frame white:

Second: found a fabric that I liked (purchased at Fabric World for only $2.99/yard!) and cut it to the dimensions of the cork board:

Third: placed the neatly pressed fabric on the inner frame of the cork board and tacked it down with white thumb tacks:

End Result: A cute board for us to have all of our important documents!

Note: I still need to hang this, but it was so late the other night I didn't have time ... I'll post the final placement once it is up!
