Have you been looking for a way to organize all of your loose papers and receipts? With this eye catching organizer you will never have to worry about rummaging through your stack of papers again!

We start off by finding a corkboard that fits our needs; this particular board is 36” wide by 24” tall. We then found a pattern that we really love from our iStencils website selection. We choose the 18" x 18" honeycomb geometric repeating stencil, as this stencil has scribing that allows us to easily align the pattern to flawlessly repeat throughout our project.

For this project we decided to mix our own paint to create a unique gradient look with a variety of grey colors. We mixed our white acrylic and black acrylic paints together in different ratios to accomplish this look.

 

 

 

After applying paint to our entire cork board we added some organizational aspects to help keep our office clean and tidy! We placed a calendar to mark off important dates, a spot for a supplies list and a wish list, an envelope to hold onto our receipts, and a magnetic strip for our paperclip needs. We also added thumbtacks to a couple of clothespins so that we can hang up inspirational photos or notes!
