I'll Drink to That !

Full Disclosure- I did not drink all the wine bottles  from the corks that you are about to see in this post!  Well, maybe just a few.
I  wanted to make something useful out of my wine corks for some time now.......
 I mean, I have a lot of corks ( remember- I didn't drink all that wine!) and was looking for a way to creatively use them in my home
I had big a big bag of corks sitting around waiting for the right project. I had seen some great looking cork boards and chalk boards and thought perhaps I could do a combination of both on the same board.
 It wasn't easy though, because I had lots of cork that I needed to use.
Looking at my new board makes me think of all the wine that I did didn't drink. 


 Click here for a tutorial on how to drink make this combination chalk/bulletin board. Cheers!

  5. Very cool Laura, it turned out great. :) I've made a few picture frames out of my huge stash of corks, but unlike you, I am guilty of drinking most of the wine that was once sealed by my corks, hee, hee.

  7. Hi, I found you through the Uncommonly Yours link up party. I am saving corks too and hope to use them to fill in an empty section of the wall in our small wine closet. Thanks for sharing your idea! www.abakershouse.com

  9. I'm saving my corks so slowly I'm getting there! If only white wines didn't have so many screw tops now! I also need a good solution for champagne corks, any ideas? I'm coming back later for the tutorial.

    1. Jessica- I actually put a few champagne corks on the board as fillers. The screw off tops remind me of cheap Boones Farm wine from back in the day ! Strawberry Fields- do you remember that stuff?
