Create this Pin-Worthy Cork Board from an Old Picture Frame

Before there was Pinterest, there was the pin board—and I still love a bulletin board to collect inspiration, notes, (printed out!) photos and ticket stubs. I’ve seen a few at retail stores for $50 and up, but forget that: This method is basically free if you already have and old frame and some paint for another decorating project—all you have to do is get $5 worth of cork to pop into this Pin-worthy project.
