Wall of Cork
I started this project thousands of corks and 3 years ago. I can't finish dry wall to save my life and I thought,"It'll be easier to just cover this in cork." Famous last words.
But I have always wanted a cork wall. I've seen cork boards before in bars, and I know I've seen corks for sale at craft stores, so they must be a popular thing to make. So, my husband and I told every wine drinker we know to save their corks for us. And they told every wine drinker they know. And, man, did they send us some corks. See the row of champagne corks? Dude, that is a lot of champagne!
OK, so it would have been a lot faster and easier to figure out how to finish the dry wall, but I have to say, I love my cork wall. It's nice to have a place besides the fridge to tack up the art projects Pepita brings home from school. And I imagine that this is where our Christmas and birthday cards will hang, too. And it wasn't really that hard to make.
