DIY Ampersand Corkboard

DIY Ampersand Corkboard!

Hey there everyone!

I have been looking at some cute stamped paintings, and I thought they were adorable! So I decided to paint my own cork board! It looks really good and the photo’s don’t do it justice.

Let’s get started!

You will need:

A cord board

This is my HUGE cork board. First, you will want to measure where you want to place the design (I chose the Ampersand)  before you start painting so it is straight and equally distanced.

Second, place the stencil where you want it to be on the board. You will want to make sure you measure it our so it isn’t crooked.

Then Paint! I used DecoArt’s Kelly Green (with some White Wash ), some True Blue, Baby Pink , Purple Wave , and Moon Yellow! The colors are awesome! (All of them had some extra white in them so thats why they look marbled in the picture below)

Keep on going until you have the whole board done! It took me about 1 1/2 hours to do the whole thing.

I also added a black backwards ampersand to just to add something to stand out and it looks awesome!
