I am in the process of making the guest room into a craft room, and I LOVE it! I have hit just about every thrift store this weekend looking for storage solutions and cute vintage finds. I came across a plain little memo cork board that I needed but decided on making it a bit better. So I went over to my favorite local fabric store, the Fancy Tiger, and bought some cute fabric (any excuse for fabric shopping!) and got started.
Here is how to make your own:
Craft Bond spray adhesive
scissors or rotary cutter and board
glue gun (optional)
Lightly sand the cork board frame and paint it.
Measure the inside of the frame where the fabric will lay.
Cut your fabric to the above measurements.
Tape the edges of the frame with painters tape.
First cover your spraying surface with newspaper so that your work space remains clean. Then spray the cork with Craft Bond. Immediately cover with your fabric and smooth away any bubbles. At this time you can gently lift the fabric and reposition if need be.
Fix your mistakes:) I misjudged with my placement. One side was short, one was long. So at this point I cut the long edge with a razor and went through all of my notion boxes for some trim to fix the problem!
Add your "oops" trim with your glue gun.
This step is completely optional, but I really love glitter and wanted a chance to have my husbands workshop all sparkly.
Voila! Admire your handy work!
