It is always sad when a picture frame falls and the glass breaks.
But don’t throw it away just yet. It will actually make a great corkboard.
First, carefully clear off and discard all of the glass pieces so all you have left is the frame and the backing.
For this frame, I wanted to change the look so I just did a thin coat of white paint.
Since I didn’t have any cork backing to put in the frame and I didn’t want to make a trip to a craft store to buy some, I decided to improvise.
We go through a ton of diapers and wipes boxes so I was happy to actually get some use out of them. Any box should work as long as it’s a thicker (like a shipping box). Your push pins push right into these boxes nicely.
I just cut out a piece of the cardboard to fit inside the frame and then glued a piece of pretty paper over it.
Then I just placed the cardboard right into the frame where the glass was and that was it.
This makes a nice addition to a backsplash area in the kitchen for those little things like receipts, numbers, notes, etc. that you want handy for a while.
This is one of those projects that makes you feel good because you saved a broken item and got some use out of your trash. 🙂
