"Rev Up" an Ordinary Cork Board

My little guy just loves his cars and trucks so I was thrilled to turn an ordinary bulletin board in his room, into a "corky"car lot!

The project started off with a bulletin board and a coat of red spray paint. I got the idea to paint the cork board from this tutorial I saw here.  
Next, I added his initial with a sharpie paint marker
To add some 3 dimensional interest I took a few of his cars and added a small wooded circle on the bottom of each car with a thumb tack glued to it
Now he will see his notes and the rules in a whole different way.
Which is just fine with this mama!
Next week( if I can get the cars moved out of the way) I will give you a tour of his Car Themed Bedroom.
Have a great weekend !

PS- Better do something fun this weekend or the fun police will be after you!

  2. such a cute idea!!! i want to make some sort of message board for sawyer's room but have yet to decide how so!

  3. Super cute Laura! I think my son would've had a heart attack if I glued anything onto the bottom of his cars. In fact, he's 15 and still doesn't want to part with them ...



  4. How sweet of you and what a great mom you must be! I'm sure he loves it.

  5. Just adorable. Perfect for your precious son.

  6. My girls have cork boards in their rooms - they need some bling!
