When we painted our kitchen cabinets I noticed the end piece didn’t take the paint as well as I would have hoped. It became an eye sore and I knew there had to be a way to make the space useful rather than trying paint again. Painting the cabinets took much longer than I planned but this little project only took an afternoon. So here you have it, you can make your very own custom pin board.

Custom Pin Board Instructions
Start by finding your cork board. I already had these square boards that fit perfectly for the width I needed. You can get them on Amazon here.
Next I stapled the fabric in place just to help in moving the cork to the cabinets. I used just a plain jane office desk stapler. Doing this helped a little and I am sure there is a better idea out there. Like hot glue but I just didn’t have the time for that. … Mrs. Impatient yes.
Next I had the hubs staple the boards in place on the cabinet while I held the cork board up. Talk about trust! I mean I trust the guy but he had never used this fancy tool before! We ended up with all fingers and toes and no one bumped their head on the cabinet. This cabinet is notorious for that! Do you have cabinets that hang out with nothing underneath them? That’s honestly the problem and the fact that I put our trash can right underneath.
Depending on the time of year our board is covered with graduation announcements, wedding invitations or baby announcements. I love it when it gets completely filled with Christmas cards!
