My girlfriend wanted a trendy looking cork-board for her room. We looked around for one but couldn't seem to find one that she liked, but since it was almost Christmas I decided to surprise her and build one.

Step 1: What you will need

Since I was in a rush for this project I didn't have time to shop around for the best deals. If you have the time and patience you could definitely do this project for much cheaper than I did.

-Picture frame
-A roll of cork-board
-Sheet of fabric
-Spray paint 
-Finishing nails

It's gorgeous! Love the frame and the fabric you picked--probably will make one this week! Handmade gifts are so charming, she's a lucky girl! :)
Ooh, that looks great! I love the frame!
