DIY Polka Dot Bulletin Board

Thursday, September 24, 2015

This project was so easy, yet it made such a nice addition to my work space.
It's the little things, right?

All you need is a plain cork board (I found mine at Hobby Lobby), some acrylic paint, a paint brush, and something round to make a circle stencil with.

I started off by painting the frame of my cork board white.
I normally would have used painters tape along the edges of the cork, but I couldn't find mine.
C'est la vie.

My paint job turned out a little less than perfect which doesn't really bother me, but I would recommend taping off the border.

I didn't feel like buying an actual circle stencil, so I made my own. I used a large circular hole punch that I already had in my craft closet, and made about 4 stencils out of card stock scraps.

I fixed any mistakes free-hand, and also applied a second coat of paint to my polka dots because I really wanted the gold to pop.

Once the board is dry you are free to pin whatever pretty things inspire you!
