Thank you for all your comments! 

Update: My cork board was featured in a local interior design magazine here in Manila!  Grin

If anyone has created something similar, I'd love to see your photos!  Please post!

Here's the one I made for my mom... I found a vintage Syroco mirror at an antique flea market for $16. It wasn't a pretty color, so I spraypainted it using Krylon Champagne Brushed Metal paint. She LOVED it. One thing I found is that one layer of cork is not enough, if you're using like, a roll of cork. I put two layers in so that the tacks wouldn't go through the backing.

Thank you again for the inspiration! I'm going to make one for myself now too.  Cheesy

This was an awesome idea! My favorite crafty projects are things reconstructions.

There will probably be one in my home very soon.

What a great idea! This adds the chic needed for someone over the age of 13 to have a cork board!

I made my own too, to go with my desk and chair I had spray painted a bright cheery blue.
Got the frame from the thrift store, it was not a mirror though, was a picture with a backing to the frame that was nice and thick, so I ended up only using one layer of cork and it was still OK. Was not super ornate but I enjoy it!



Thanks for the great idea!
