I wanted to add a bulletin board to my craft room so I could pin project ideas and inspiration to it, and I found this old bulletin board in our storage room.
Pretty boring, right? I decided to paint the wood black.
First I taped off the cork because I KNOW I am a messy painter!
Then I went over the black with a iridescent paint to add a shimmer to it.
It does not show up very well in the photos, but in real life it has a really glossy finish and the black looks like a fresh wet paint even when it dried.
And here is how it looks in my craft room!
I found the cute Mickey Mouse on canvas artwork at the store . . . on sale!
