Making Cork Wall Panels
Cork wall panels – Turn unused wall space into an office, kitchen or craft room to a functional display area with cork. Pushpins can be inserted directly into the surface of the cork without damaging your walls so that you can hang out schedules, calendars, and important notes in a convenient view. You can also use cork as a unique and eye-catching decorative wall covering material. All you need to create a cork wall is a bit wood and some other basic necessities.
Measure the part of the wall that you want to cover with a cork wall panels. Measure both height and width. Cut a piece of plywood to the size of those measured from the wall. Cut a piece of cork board to the size of those measured from the wall. Apply two layers of adhesive to the surface of the plywood. Touch the cork on adhesive coated plywood. Allow 24 hours for the cork to dry with plywood. Cut half-inch wood casting to dimensions top, bottom and sides of plywood. Use a saw to cut the edges of the casting at an angle so that the pieces fit together.
Attach the list to the edges of plywood with hot glue, creating a frame. Hang two tile hooks on the upper corners of the back of the plywood. Use a tape measure to measure the placement of backing pads on the back of the plywood. Apply the measurements to the cork wall panels, marking two small circles where each hook will be seated. Hammer and nail in each of the small circles. Hang the cork board on the nails with travel hooks.
