DIY Project: Campaign Style Cork Board

Design*Sponge Campaign Corkboard DIY
When it comes to keeping my office organized, I’m always up for new things. Paper stacks and various supplies tend to disappear from my thought if they’re not kept in a visible place. Although so many ways to showcase inspiration surface daily, I’ve found that if organization is the least bit fussy, I won’t do it, so nothing works as well for me as a good, old fashioned cork board. Since I don’t want my office to look like a grade school, I’ve come up with a more chic way to dress up my cork board and make it seam like a legit part of my decor, rather than an afterthought. -Erin

Materials:
-1′ x 1′ cork squares with mounting foam (mine came in a set of four)
-16 1.5″ brass corner braces
-64 #4 1/2″ brass screws
-Super glue
-Screwdriver

Steps:

Step One: Squeeze a little bit of super glue onto the back of your L bracket. If your bracket has engraved part numbers or wording, glue onto this side so that you’ll get the smooth side facing outwards.

Step Two: Place the bracket into the corner of a cork square and use a screwdriver to gently screw it down. The glue will hold the bracket secure and the screws are more about the finished look, so don’t screw them in too tightly or your cork will break apart.

Step Three: Use your mounting squares to fix the cork to the wall.

The whole project is so easy and is a much more stylish take on a universally needed office or home organization tool.

I think I’d like to see the cork boards painted so the brass really stands out.

i have used mounting squares in the past to install cord boards, but upon taking them down in a rental apartment i found they took chunks of paint with them! any advice as to how to avoid this problem?

Anna

This is so pretty and simple. Can you paint the cork black, does that work?
