I needed a pin board for my office, and went out shopping. Turns out, most pin boards are really ugly! So I decided to make a different one my self.
I found some really cool cork coasters in Tiger (that Danish shop that has all kinds of strange stuff). With these I can make my own very simple pin board, by mouthing or hanging from the wall. Since I rent, I decided I would have to use the picture rails to hang the cork boards from. So I got picture rail hooks from Wilkinson, along with some copper hooks and some thread.
Simply screw in your hook (any hook with a screw you can find/like)
You could mount the pin boards on your wall, get a nail in and hang it from that, or do what I did if you have picture rails.
Eh voila! Simplest DIY you will find, took me 10 mins. :)
ps: I got that copper house shaped basked in tiger as well. Didn't know what to do with it, but turns out it went well with my pin boards!
Good luck DIYing:)
