Giving new life to an old bulletin board

I wanted to add a bulletin board to my craft room so I could pin project ideas and inspiration to it, and I found this old bulletin board in our storage room.


Pretty boring, right?  I decided to paint the wood black.  
First I taped off the cork because I KNOW I am a messy painter!  


Then I went over the black with a iridescent paint to add a shimmer to it.  


It does not show up very well in the photos, but in real life it has a really glossy finish and the black looks like a fresh wet paint even when it dried.


And here is how it looks in my craft room!
I found the cute Mickey Mouse on canvas artwork at the store . . . on sale!
