Cork Board for the Craft Room!

Along with our new home came an extra bedroom that became my craft room!
Let's just say that when we moved in, I clearly had no time for crafting until we got settled in so we ended up just putting all the "craft stuff" boxes in the craft room until I had time to organize everything.  Well, that time has come!
The walls are naked and I want to make it a space where I want to be, a place that is clean and I can actually find the things I need without searching.  Novel idea right? :]
I want a place that I can just throw my ideas when they come to me.
In comes this beauty of a cork board!

When I first got it, it was black, then I spray painted it white with some Krylon.

I LOVE the small little details around the edges :]
So much potential!

In comes a Scotch-Brite pad:]

Josh has been trying to convert me to these...I don't know if i'm converted yet, but I decided to give them a try!
I thought they would be easier to sand with due to their thickness.

Now those little details aren't so little anymore!

I scuffed up the sides with the SB pad and tada!

Now I just need to find a way to jazz up those push pins...
I think I have just the thing!
