I enjoy simple things: solitude, cheap sheet cake, and sunlight. I also believe that white is, in fact, a color. Bring me fresh flowers and we can be friends.

Repaint and Repurpose: The Cork Board

I've had this cork board since college. When I moved into my apartment, it was one of the first things I hung up in the kitchen to keep my reminders and random souvenirs. I bought it in a beige antique / country finish, and that is how it hung there, until I finally got around to repurposing it. 

After a while, I realized I didn't like the cork board in the kitchen.  My kitchen is small and I don't like clutter; the cork board had begun to turn into a funeral home for any paper products that I didn't know what to do with, and really had no relevance to the kitchen.

Since scoring this parsons desk on Craigslist for $80 (!!!!!!!!!), I've been working on creating my own little work station in my "room".  A few coats of semi gloss white spray paint (my favorite!) and I have a new, more appropriate, home for my new cork board.

Now I am thinking about some open shelves above my desk and a desk chair.
