For most fashionistas, we spend a lot of time putting together outfits. While tools like Pinterest help a lot, I rarely pull out my tablet or phone to scroll through endless outfits; it's just too much hassle. So, I decided to make my own physical Pinterest in my closet to help make outfit creation easier.
Framed Cork Board - Purchased at Target for less than $10.
Gold Paint - You can pick other colors like white or black too.
2 Foam Brushes - 1 for the paint, another for the glue.
Fabric - Choose one with a simple large pattern. Mine is an outdoor fabric purchased from Joann's Fabrics. Outdoor fabric will be easier to clean, thicker and resistant to wrinkling.
Step 1 - Paint the frame, and allow it to dry. It can take many hours for the paint to completely dry.
Step 2 - Cut the fabric to be the same size as the cork board surface.
Step 3 - Spread the fabric glue on the cork board. Be sure to spread all the glue and not leave large globs here and there like mine above. Do this quickly.
Step 4 - Quickly before the glue dries, press your fabric to the corkboard!
Immediately after fabric was pressed firmly onto the board. The glue was not nearly as obvious once it dried. But, to avoid this, simply spread the glue more thinly in all spots.
Allow it to dry, and your board is ready for pinning!
Pin some inspirational outfits. It can also be used to organize jewelry!
I've had my physical closet pinterest for a few days now, and it's already helped me put together outfits that I wouldn't have come up with on my own.
