Our whiteboard in the kitchen has completely given out on us so I've been on the look out for a new one, or a cork board that didn't cost a fortune. We went to a garage sale where at the end of day, everything was priced at fifty cents. I found a frame and a banged up cork board, handed over my dollar bill and came home to craft.
I've seen covered cork boards all over the place, but never with instructions. I think people assume it's too obvious to explain but I wasn't sure where to start - staples? Glue? Red Line tape?
First my husband cut down the cork to fit inside the frame:
Then I sprayed the cork with spray adhesive, applied fabric and smoothed out the wrinkles.
To simplify dealing with the excess fabric on the back, I taped the edges down:
I used my hot glue gun to tack down the corners, placed the cork in the frame and then ran a bead of glue around the seam (at the back) to make sure it was secure.
This is part of my April Stash-busting as I was able to use some of the beautiful fabric I own.
I have some really exciting news for all of you sweet people who read my blog. Stay tuned :-)
