Introduction: Upcycling Old and Unused Corkboards

For this upcycling project I decided to turn some old and unused corkboards my brother was supposed to use when he went to college 3 years ago but he left them at home and they were never used.My mother was going to throw them away a while back and I told her that I may need them for when i head to college.So instead i decided id turned them into 4 little bulletin boards.This works out perfectly because I am a hoarder and I stockpile loads of notes and items ive gathered over the years.Most of these things usuall have sentimental value even though others see it as trash.

Anyways on to the project!

Step 1: Get the Materials Needed

The materials I used were:
Corkboards
Poster board leftovers
Duck tape
Scissors
Thumbtacks & Pushpins
Items & things to put on my board

Step 2: Adding the Backing

I decided to add a backing to my boards since they were out in the harsh weather so they accumulated cork dust.This made it hard to just hang up and caused a mess.So the backing was just some leftover poster board I had and it made hanging easier.All I did was duck tape to the cutout poster board and then taped it onto the board.

Step 3: Hanging It Up

After I taped the backing,all I did was hang them up.I chose to have them up like I did because it looked better than having them all pushed together.

Step 4: Adding Things!

After I hung them up I added things to it! I added things that meant a lot to me and things that represent me.I feel like this gives my room some uniqueness and some style too! :)
