When my sister went away to college, she packed up a plain old cork board.
While she saw a place to pin all the digits boys slip her, I saw opportunity for jazzing up the basic. I took her cork board back home with me and nearly two semesters later, I jazzed it up. The best part is that this was super easy, and cheap when you have coupons and sales galore. I hit up Hobby Lobby during a fabric sale and picked up some colorful fabric, decorative tacks and that sweet wooden letter. All of the supplies including extra hot glue gun sticks cost a whopping $10. If you have a coupon you could score the cork board on the cheap too. Then turn on your favorite Housewives show and get to work. The hardest part was putting the tacks in straight and without breaking my thumb. I know there are lots of tutorials on how to keep the tacks straight, and I am sure you could use a small hammer to spare your thumb. I am not that “put-together” but you totally can be. To secure the fabric I just hot glued the back of the board with the fabric pulled super tight, and don’t be cheap with the glue. Really slather it on there. Same goes for the wooden letter, pretty it up and then glue that sucker on.
