Puzzler Boards by UmbraÂ®
A few problems
I really liked these when they came, but then the problem started when the corners started to peel off from the board. It was only a few days after we installed them that this problem started and it looks terrible. Also, the product does not stick to the included adhesive for long, so you will either need to buy other adhesive or put some nails or screws into the wall (which is what we ended up having to do, and what I did not want to do). They are also a bit harder to clean than what I expected. I really liked how they look (we bought two of these and two of the cork boards), but with these problems I'm not sure that I could recommend this product.

They aren't the most beautiful things I've ever seen and they do seem a bit flimsy but I give it 5 stars because it fits my needs exactly. I needed a bulletin board over my desk but I have very limited wallspace and there are lightswitches and a thermostat to navigate around. I arranged 4 of the cork boards in an interesting pattern to maximize use of the wall.
Also here's a tip: I stapled colorful ribbons at kiddie-corners on the cork boards to spruce them up and provide picture-holding slots.

Use nails, Adhesive does not work, ruins paint
The adhesive that comes with these boards does not work, use the nail holes on the back! It fell off after only a few weeks and left the adhesive on the wall. I now have to get it off and it is not coming off easily. Neat product, but use the nail holes on the back. Does not come with mounting hardware.

Wow ! these are what I was trying to make !
Had been trying to figure out how to make the front of my craft cabinet useful.;even thought of magentic paint & "chalk paint" (if such a product existed). Then I rec'd the sale catalog & there they were ! Purchased the cork board & the magnetic/white erase board.
Couldn't be happier- they fit the doors perfectly & were a cinch to hang ... now I can create my "mood boards".
Better still, I realized that this was just the kind of system needed to hang mementos for my Dad in his nursing home room . Bravo !!
