I am currently working on turning our office (which we seriously NEVER used) into a play room for Emmy. Mainly because my OCD gets all out of control when I see her toys all over my living room. (I am working on coping with this.)
I wanted a place to hang her artwork on the wall (I really plan ahead), and saw some really cute pinterest corkboard makeovers, so I enlisted my mom (who really did all the work) to help me.
So here is our before:
We then took adhesive spray and sprayed the cork, placed the linen fabric over it and took upholstery tacks and started in the four corners.
Because my tutorial is pretty lame, here is the one we went off of from two twenty one. I will say, I liked using a solid fabric because it leaves you a little room for error. Which, let’s be honest, when it comes to a craft project, I need a little room.
I am still in the process of looking for a media center/storage for her toys, but here is the new rug I got from Overstock (they sell the same one at Home Decorators for twice the price) and the table my inlaws got Emmy for Christmas. Iris’s mother-in-law painted it and it has a chalkboard top. I just LOVE it!
As per the usual, the pics were taken with my phone. But we are operating on a slim time margin around here!
