This is a pretty easy, short project to complete. I bought this large cork board at Walmart a couple of years ago and haven’t been able to use it. I accidentally ripped off the cork around the edges where I repainted the frame black, it looked ugly and unusable. Second, I didn’t have the wall space.
So when I started planning this room, the board came to mind, but again, it looked too ugly to use. So I looked around Pinterest and found that some people use fabric to cover up their boards. Here’s my take on how to get it done.
After I purchased the fabric I wanted, I spread it out on top and line it up. Then grab some pins and pin it in place.
After I cut off the excess, I took my handy-dandy hot glue gun to "seal the deal" and keep it in place. I glued it about a half inch away from the frame so that I could tuck the rest of the fabric underneath the frame.
From there, I took this tiny Philips head screwdriver and used it to tuck the fabric underneath the frame.
I have two different sizes because the larger helped with some of the larger chunks of fabric. But most of the time, I used the smaller one.
Do that to all four side and done! Pretty simple and only took a half hour to do.
Now I have the flexibility to put whatever I want on this board. I have my Superhero Rules poster, a superhero alphabet Printable I found on Pinterest, and some pictures of my baby.
Since I finished this before my baby was born, the only photos I have were of the ultrasounds. Eventually I'll put up some actual photos of him.
Thanks for reading! Stay tuned for more craft ideas.
