Pretty DIY Corkboards

Looking for a fun and easy weekend project? Why not make your own fancy cork board?! I love this idea because the ones I've seen are usually pretty limited on the choices of frames AND they also happen to be pretty darn expensive. Since all you need is a frame from a thrift shop, some paint, glue, and a cork board, this DIY project is a total cinch.

And, oh, by the way, don't forget to tell a friend if you like what you see! xo

All you do is slice the tomatoes in half, cut the cheese into tomato size cubes, and spear everything on a toothpick in this order: tomato half, cheese cube, other tomato half, basil leaf. If you have the tomato half with the stem side on the bottom, it will do a good job of standing upright since it is flatter. Now mix up some balsamic vinegar with some olive oil and some fresh ground pepper and drizzle it over and around the caprese bites. And dig in – pop the whole thing […]
