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!

Beautiful Laura! I love how you created the frame around the chalkboard! ;)

Keeping it Cozy said...

It looks great! It gives the frame such fun character. :-)

Cassie @ Primitive & Proper said...

i love it! and there is no shame in having that many corks- it's better than crushed beer cans! i have lots of corks, too.

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.

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

Such a great idea. I seem to be accumulating a few wine corks too ...

Jessica @ Stay at Home-ista said...

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.

I love this project! You are funny and I am lucky because I work two days a week in a wine store! I'm collecting corks for just such a project! Thanks for the inspiration and I'm happily following you via GFC.

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?
