How to Paint a Cork Board

Need a little spice in your space? Learn the simple steps on how to paint a cork board and jazz up your standard memo cork boards with some color.

  1. First: The correct paint

    Use only specific types of craft paints for your cork board. Try acrylic craft paints in a selection of colors; dilute thicker paints to avoid absorption damage in the cork surface.

  2. Second: The precise coats

    Apply one coat of paint with a small brush or sponge. Let the coat dry completely to avoid smudges. Apply a second coat for a darker, more substantial color.

  3. Third: The final touches

    After the cork board is dry, hang the colored cork board in your desired location. Add push pins or ribbons for added flair.
