My sister’s kitchen has undergone some big changes. The reveal will shock you when you see the before and after pics. One project we tackled was a diy cork board. She had a cabinet on the wall that was so awkward. It was directly to the left of the door to the garage and every time you entered into the kitchen, you felt like you were going to hit your head on the cabinet. So I suggested we take it down and turn that space into a functional cork board/message center. Here is a look at the cabinet before we took it down.
And after we removed it.
We got a roll of cork and simply cut out a piece with a blade to fit the dimensions of the wall.
I sprayed the back with some spray adhesive and then pressed it on to the wall. This stuff sticks SO well.
My sister picked up some trim molding from Home Depot to make a frame around the cork. She painted it blue to tie in with her cabinets.
We cut the pieces at a 45 degree angle and used a liquid nails type of adhesive to press the molding in place.
And here it is!
I love the way this turned out. We were able to turn an awkward spot into something functional for about $10 worth of materials.
