{rainy day project}

For once I actually followed through on a project - start to finish!!!!
Maybe I shouldn't get so excited, it only took me about 5 minutes to complete, but still, it's a start.

It all started with a little site called Pinterest.
To say that I am obsessed would be an understatement, I am head-over-heels, madly in love - that's right, I used the "L" word.

and I stumbled across this picture

So while I was out and about today, I ran into Hobby Lobby and picked up a package of cork squares. I opted for the slightly more expen$ive ones (big surprise, right?) - I just preferred the deep espresso color, rather than the traditional orange-y cork. I also grabbed some adhesive strips to stick those puppies to the cabinet.

I did some really scientific measuring, aka I just marked my cut marks with a pencil, then whipped out a steak knife and cutting board and trimmed the excess. Next, I stuck on some adhesive strips and slapped them inside the cabinet door. Hope you kept up with all of those complicated steps :)

And voila, here's the finished product


  1. good job, I hope to be inspired by one of your projects, keep posting them... you are so creative it's bound to happen for me : )
