Instead of painting, I used a stain for a rustic look.
The cheapest place to find wood pegs was Hobby Lobby. There are 5 in a package for 1.47!
You can't beat that.
I used a countersink drill bit to make the holes and pounded them in after applying a little wood glue.
For the cork board, I had some squares already on hand. I had to piece them together so it doesn't look as nice, but it will most likely be covered with something. I used spray adhesive to adhere the cork board. To make it blend with the wood , I also rubbed a little stain all over the cork board.
The worst part is hanging for me. I hung the board with D Rings onto screws. I may have Nicole help me put keyholes in the back so they will sit flush against the wall.
I gathered up some of my son's stuff and made it look pretty! I printed a few pictures off of the computer and spray adhesived them to card stock.
One project down and many more to go. I am moving at the pace of a snail with projects! My days are full of swimming, cleaning, laundry, cooking, and more cleaning! Busy, busy with these boys all home, but we are having a good summer!
I think the project up next is curtains, see you soon! :)
