One of my favorite bloggers Bryn Alexandra posted this brilliant how to make an ugly cork-board genius blog - Divine no?
Here is how she did it , "This project was a very easy DIY. I used inexpensive linen-like cream fabric from Mary Jo's. I ordered and added antique brass nail heads from here (I found the link via Jenny). The tedious part was nailing in all those nail heads into four cork boards." BRAVO Bryn!!!
