From an Old Wall Picture to a Repurposed Cork Board!

I love being able to take something that is out-dated and giving it a new life.  I love how this Repurposed Cork Board turned out.

Old picture into a repurposed cork board

 

I took apart the picture and removed the glass insert.  I used the existing print and backing of the picture.

Since the cork roll is a thin layer, I decided to use a layer of foam to give the cork more cushion.  I originally was going to use 2 layers of cork, but the foam was a better option.  I have a new CRUSH of the paint color I chose for this project.  I used Sherwin Williams #SW7052 Gray Area.  I love, Love, LOVE this color.

Minwax polycrylic sealer

I applied antique glaze to the details of the frame to give the frame more color and richness.  I sealed the frame with my favorite polycrylic from Minwax 23333 Satin Polycrylic Protective Finishes, 1/2 Pint

Yes, I painted the cork!  The cork color is not very flattering, so why not have it match your frame.

I love the details in this repurposed cork board frame.

I decided to use it to hang jewelry.  I needed a new display piece for my shop, so this one was it.

    What type of glaze did you use to get these great results? I need some type of glaze to redo a buffet I am working on.

      Tricia, I used the antique glaze by Valspar. I purchased it at Lowe’s. It is black in color and you apply it to the areas you want to antique and wipe off the excess. It is really easy to work with. Good luck on your piece you are redoing!
