Mini Project Monday: Greek Key Corkboard

I’m finding my thoughts turning towards creating a tranquil, if not girly, craft room/office so I have a relaxing place to scrapbook.  Hubby hasn’t even started to fix up the third garage that will become his “man cave” (although he has started talking about it) but I’m tired of having a chaotic office space.

Having said that, this knock-off Pottery Barn corkboard project in no way contributes towards a more organized space but I was inspired nonetheless!  It looks VERY tedious (and it was) but actually didn’t take that long to do.  It was only an hour and a half from “Here, take the baby so I can do a DIY project” to “my thumbs hurt too much to keep adjusting the pins!”

Pottery Barn sells a corkboard just like this for the low price of…$160!!!  Mine cost me virtually nothing.  I used a corkboard left behind by my grandparents when they moved and I already had the fabric and thumbtacks in my stash.  Getting a $160 corkboard for $0 is totally worth the sore thumbs from pushing the pins in!
