At the bottom of my daughter’s closet, I found an old cork board.
The ugliness of it amazed me – I’m not sure, how it found its way into my home. But even more surprising, was that it survived many of my de-cluttering fits (I am a big believer of “throw/giveaway what I don’t use or like anymore”).
I was working on my command center project at the time, so I was happy I found it.
Putting aside how ugly it was, I knew that with my creativity and the handiness of my husband, we could transform it into a nice, decorative piece.
