I’m in the middle of my kitchen organization project. You probably think it’s a major overhaul kind of project, based on the time it’s taking me. It’s not. I just haven’t gotten to dedicate much time working on it. So it might be an anti-clamactic reveal! I have some cork tiles hanging on the wall. I love the texture of cork. But as I’ve been looking at them, part of me thinks I want to paint them. Shocking, right? Me? Paint something? Never!

Here are some photos that are inspiring me…

My cork board isn’t square like this (it’s 2 high and 4 wide, so basically two of these side by side), so I could do this pattern twice. Would it be too busy? I’m not sure. But I do like it.

This white, studded cork board is simple and I like that! I’m thinking about just painting my cork tiles solid white. I really like those black clips against the white. My cork doesn’t have a frame, but that’s OK.

This cork was painted with black chalkboard paint and put in that great gold frame. Check out the link for great directions on how they did this. I don’t think this would work in the kitchen, but I might have to find another place to do this!

I’ve also considered doing wide stripes on the cork. Isn’t this a cute little nursery?

I really like this gray board. The more I think about it, the more I’m leaning towards painting it a solid color. Probably white.

What do you think? Do you like a painted cork board? Which picture do you like best?!
