Add a little flair to your desk this season with a neon pop! Yoobi's chalk paint is super multifunctional. Today, we're going to show you an easy step by step tutorial, on how to jazz up a cork board for your desk!


Here's what you'll need:

1) Cork Board

2) Painters Tape

3) Our Yoobi Cubed Ruler for simple measure

5) A Yoobi Gel Pen

4) Yoobi Sidewalk Paint


Step 1: Start by determining what type of pattern you'd like to create on your cork board. If you'd like to keep it simple and fun with a square piece of cork board, measure 3/4" around the entire board with your Yoobi Ruler, and marking it slightly with a Yoobi Gel Pen. 


Step 2: Use your painters tape to make every other 3/4" from one side to the other creating straight, and even stripes throughout. 

Step 3: Choose your color. Yoobi Sidewalk paint comes with 6 different colors. Feel free to mix and match them too! 

Step 4: Paint your cork board parallel to the tape.


*This will help to avoid from any paint from getting underneath the tape!*

Step 5: Let the paint dry for a good 5-10 minutes, then peal the tape off.


Voilà! Your very own, personalized cork board perfect for your little nook.
