It was so easy and took very little time for an awesome big impact!
If you recall, earlier in the week I was cutting my wine corks in half by using this incredible tip. It sure made it faster and easier to cut them and saved a ton of time. I decided to cut mine for this project because I figured the frame was thin enough and it would double the amount of space I was filling in with my corks.

I started out with this framed mirror that was my grandmothers.
It was part of a set. I previously blogged about the other one in this furniture makeover post. I love them both and don't think I will ever part with them.
If you like the look of the mirror or their elegant frames, here is where you can find some similar:
Anyway, back to the black mirror.
I love how the black elegant frames plays up the roughness of the corks.
P.S. If you are not a wine drinker but still like the look of this project, no worries - I have shopped around for you and found the perfect solution. These recycled wine corks are available from Amazon for a great price and would work beautifully!
Now for the fun part, setting up my display. This weekend we used it as a backdrop on our buffet while we entertained some friends. I got many compliments about the presentation. How cute would it be as a Chef Menu Board!
If I only had more time to prepare, maybe next time!
I can also use it as a memo board to display pictures, notes or business cards - the possibilities are endless.
I love the way it turned out! What do you think? How would you use it?
Now remember to save your corks!
