Has anyone tried it? I have this huge half cork board/half white board thing...i want to paint the wood edge, which I know will work, but what about the cork? Has anyone tried? I'm sure it would work, but with my mother, she encourages my creativity but if I ruin something, all hell breaks loose....plus i love my cork/dry-erase board and would hate to mess it up somehow.

I bought a huge roll of cork board from pearl paint that I painted with acrylic and put up in my apartment to lessen the horrible sterile white walls.  It looks fantastic, and it's fairly cheap.

The cork board does tend to absorb the paint, though, so you have to use a fair amount. Other than that it works perfectly, doesn't get crunchy or anything.
