Things are a little hectic here with my grandparents ( I will share more soon, it’s been an emotional week ) but in the meantime, I wanted to share this fun DIY cork board office wall that I created for HomeGoods a few months ago. HomeGoods hired me to create this space at one of their offsite studios and it was so much fun. Stay tuned for more on my grandfather though this week. It’s too much to type for my brain at the moment and all I do is cry when I start writing about his failing health but I plan to share soon but in the meantime, say a little prayer for him and my family. It’s going to be a rough upcoming week. Lets get on with something a little more happy though, this cute cork board office wall.
It’s amazing how tiny 12 x 12 cork board tile pieces can completely transform an entire wall.
You can get these fun sticky square cork board pieces at most Home Improvement stores and you simply, peel and stick.
I happened to get these 12×12 cork board tile pieces at Lowes but I have linked them here on Amazon as well for your shopping pleasure. You can adhere these pieces to just about any surface as long as it’s flat and smooth. I covered roughly and 8′ by 8′ wall and it took me about an hour or so. I found it easier to peel a bunch of squares prior to starting which helped speed up the process. I started in one lower corner and worked my way across.
Once the cork board tiles were covering the wall, I decided to add a floating shelf to the wall in order to have a place to show picture frames and a small plant. The great thing about a cork board wall is that you can pin up papers and clip boards to showcase memorabilia or to-do lists. Anything goes when creating a cork board office wall.
Here is a video tutorial of me creating the wall compliments of HomeGoods.
