I have fraternal twin sons that had a school family history project that they needed to do some research for, so we decided to trace back twins in the family. Both my parents are twins. My mother is an identical twin and my father has a fraternal twin brother. We found out that there are quite a few sets of twins on my mothers side going back several generations! My mom was nice enough to give me a copy of a few of the sets of twins. It was a fun project. The corkboard made a perfect way to display the pictures!
What you will need:
First glue the wood applique on the cabinet door.
I usually paint on a layer of acrylic paint before I use spray paint. If I don't, I usually end up using a lot more spray paint.
Next, coat the frame with spray paint.
After the paint has dried, lightly sand the frame to rough it up a bit.
I like to use a faux glaze that I have tinted with some brown acrylic paint. I usually apply it to the areas I have sanded and a bit here and there - I wipe it off rather quickly with a rag so it doesn't give it a smeared look. If you want more of an antiqued look you could use the tinted faux glaze all over the frame.
I decided that I wanted to paint the cork a gray color to go with some other decor in the house
My great hubby was nice enough to use his air nailer and nail the cork and backing in to the cabinet door frame!
What do you have on your cork board?
Thanks so much for stopping by!
