Renovation Detail: The Built-In Corkboard

We have started purchasing the stuff. And by go time, I suggest our renovation’s point in which I request my carpenter husband to create the customizations from my wish list. The built-in corkboard.

I’m a saver: snail mail, paint chips, movie tickets, blue ribbons, fabric swatches. And rather than loading my loft using shoeboxes filled with these sentimental trinkets, I’d rather snare up them to appreciate and display them. The corkboard is the best solution.

By integrating cork into the nooks and crannies of your home, you make a personal museum. On cabinet doors, above desks built-in corkboards tell the story of our own lives. Where in your home can you tell yours?
