I wanted to post some pictures of the new items I made for my cube at work. Since I finally have my own cube (first time ever since I started working back in 2007) I wanted to decorate it with some fun and functional items. Both of these items started as frames from Goodwill. They were about 2 bucks each. I bought some fun spray paint colors at Lowes and gave the frames a face lift. I took out all the glass and matting and all that good stuff so that I wouldn’t have to worry about taping anything. The first frame I planned on using as a white board.
Once the paint was dry on the frame, I covered the matting that was inside the frame with some pretty yellow fabric. I used Mod Podge on this one…and I think I used a little too much because you can see the streaks. Oh well, first attempt. Then I put the glass and newly covered matting back in the frame and voila! A pretty new whiteboard.
The second frame I wanted to use as a corkboard. I had bought the little squares of cork at Office Depot for like $6. I hot glued them on to the matting that came with the frame and then covered the whole thing with some awesome fabric. I left the glass off (obviously) and put the new covered matting back in the frame. What do you think?? I love the way it brightens up my little space. It was a total upcycle and I love it!
