Paint the photo frame.Start by taking apart the photo frame and painting it. Take out the backing, the glass, and any paper. Protect your painting area and spray several thin coats onto the frame. Let it dry according to your paint can, usually 30 minutes to an hour.
Cut the cork board.While you’re waiting for the paint to dry, use the pieces you removed from the frame to trim the cork board to fit. Set the backing on top of the cork with the cutting mat underneath, then cut around it with the rotary cutter.
Make the DIY cork board pins.You can use any pins that work with a cork board, but I thought it would be fun to DIY some. To make these, simply hot glue beads or buttons onto flat thumbtacks.
Assemble the cork board frame.When the frame is dry, slide the cork inside where the glass was. Trim the edges if necessary to get it to fit. Use the scraps to make two more pieces of cork that measure 2x1 inches. Hot glue these onto the front of your cork board near the bottom on one side. Leave enough space between for the phone charger cord. Slide the back of the frame in.
Set up your desktop phone stand.Stand the frame up on your desk, a nightstand, or wherever you prefer to charge your phone. The phone should be able to stand on the little cork bits and when you plug in the charger, the cord can run through the little gap.
