Quick Project: Re-purpose old baking tins into cork pin boards

Use old baking tins and lids, some Rust-Oleum spray paint and a roll of cork to give your home office a revamp.

26/11/2018

Old baking tins or lids can easily be re-purposed into cork pin boards. Once you have made your cork pin boards, stick some self-adhesive hangers on the back of the tins or lids to mount onto the wall above your desk.

YOU WILL NEED:

Roll of cork

Self-adhesive picture hangers

Pattex No More Nails adhesive

Rust-Oleum 2X satin canyon black

TOOLS:

Cordless screwdriver

Cutting adapter or craft knife and cutting mat

Tape measure and pencil

 

 

HERE'S HOW:

1. Measure the diameter of the bottom of your baking tins or lids.

2. Transfer the measurement onto your cork sheet and cut out with a Bosch IXO and cutting attachment, or use a craft knife and cutting mat.

3. Spray the baking tins or lids with a couple of coats of Rust-Oleum 2X in satin, canyon black. Only apply light even coats and let the first coat dry thoroughly before applying the second coat.

4. Place a bead of adhesive around the inside base of the tin or lid and press your cut cork circles firmly in place.
