DIY cheater (cork) board

This is what I like to call a cheater DIY. I see something I like and make it as cheaply as I can. Everyone has seen DIY corkboards floating around pinterest. I wanted one for my kitchen and I already had a Schumacher fabric remnant lying around and a huge frame I got for $7
I'm cheap and corkboard rolls were $30 for how much I needed, so I got creative (another word for cheap)
 Yep thats right. I glued 2 layers of foam core together, and then I laid the fabric over and stapled it into the frame. So there you go, cheater cork board for about $10 and so far its held up well with tacks. 

Don't forget to enter our monogrammed clutch giveaway, today's the last day! 

Also, sweet Tiffany from Tiffany Leigh Interior Design just did a great DIY project inspired by my DIY gold leaf leopard print tray, make sure you check it out

So cute - LOVE this. I am a total cheap cheater when it comes to DIYs as well, because sometimes they can ADD up! Check out my DIY chalkboard I posted about yesterday - it was a cheap cheater! ;)
