Linen Pin Board

I have been eying the cute linen pinboards in all the major catalogs like Pottery Barn, Ballards, etc.
I've been looking for a cork board at thrift stores when my friend gave me a board that is cork like, for FREE! It was the perfect size being about 24" x 30".



I found some linen I liked for about $5. I ironed it up and laid my board on top of it.


I love the texture of linen.


I just hot glued it to the back. Pull tight!


I had bought and intended to put nail head trim around the whole perimeter of the board but I got it out of the package and hated it...it look super cheapy and not professional. SO I used the single nail head tacks that came in the package and did the corners.

I LOVE the finished product! I think it looks so beautiful and to me I think it looks like I bought it at Pottery Barn. I just need to attach a cream silk ribbon and hang it.


And another project that needs to be added to the list as a result of this project: Cute Tacks!

That is a beautiful and very stylish pinboard! The linen is gorgeous.

I have posted a pink post to honour a very dear friend of mine who passed away this week from breast cancer. This October's pink ribbon campaign is now even more important and poignant than ever before for me. I sure do hope you will come visit.

Best wishes,

I love the look of linen pinboards, and this DIY version is gorgeous! I might have to give the pinboard above my desk a linen makeover too... Thanks for the inspiration!
