I picked up this frame a while ago at the antique mall with the idea of turning it into a bulletin board.
Hubby removed the old mirror, and primered and painted the frame green. We used the old chipboard backing as a template to cut out a new corkboard insert from a roll purchased at the store. We actually ended up using 2 pieces back to back as the insert because it was pretty thin cork. Then we secured the cork in place by reusing the old backing.
from gold gaudy to funky gaudy!
