Wine Corks

Our friends at the bistro up town have been saving all of the used wine corks for us to use for a project.  Months later…we have a cork board!

I painted an antique frame that was falling apart with a shiny black paint.  The nailed a piece of solid peg board to the back of the frame.  I used a hot glue gun to glue the corks in, and viola!  A message board for the kitchen. 

Actually, we have a little gap in one of the rows due to corks all being different sizes, but we are cutting a cork down to half size and filling in the gap.  Also, if you are going to try this, nail the peg board to the actual back of the frame, not inside where a picture would go.  this makes the framed area a bit deeper, for the fat corks.

    That is a fantastic idea. I created a large cork board with hundreds of mine, but I still have more corks to use!
