I’m feeling all Pinteresty! How else could you explain my sudden urge to paint an old boring corkboard in pretty stripes?
Yup, this make has all the hallmarks of a Pinterest-style DIY: chevrons, pastel colours, washi tape, a corkboard… it’s pretty damn twee, but I think it looks pretty cute above my desk.
Look, I even did a Pinterest-friendly step-by-step graphic:
Step 1: Use a ruler to mark a grid on the corkboard, and mark chevrons in washi tape
Step 2: Paint – a sample pot is ideal
Step 3: Peel off the tape while it’s still damp. Touch up all the Pinterest-unacceptable wonky bits with a smaller brush.
Step 4: Have your cats scrutinise / sit on your handiwork.
The whole thing was basically an excuse to show off these adorable push pins that I found in Paperchase, to be honest.
