A Super Giveaway

Does that sound good for a surprise?!

First, I'll show you what you can win, and how I made it.

Country Chic Pegboard


I went down into my vault to pull out an old unused black frame.

I sanded the edges down to distress it a bit.

I cut my cork to the exact dimensions of the back cardboard.

Then I used spray adhesive to attach the cork to the cardboard.

I also sprayed the front of the cork and laid it face-down onto my burlap.

This frame didn't have any hanging hardware on it, so I added some.

I ended up having to bend the nails because I didn't want the nails to go all the way through. The frame wasn't thick enough for that.

Then I got to the fun part: Stenciling!

Umm....this was supposed to be flowers...

That just looks like spots on a cow.

I need a mulligan!

Ah! Much better!

And every pegboard needs thumbtacks!

But I want some fun thumbtacks!

So I bought a bunch of buttons from Walmart and turned them upside down.

Then I used some epoxy and glued my thumbtacks to them.

Wala! It's perfect!

One lucky winner gets this fun pegboard!
(The winner will only get the pegboard pictured above. The metal stand is NOT included. The back is not finished, like a regular picture frame, so I recommend hanging it! It would also make great artwork!!)
