This daggy corkboard is in desperate need of a makeover. It’s in Richard’s corner of the office and its terrribly boring.
30 minutes of crafting later… Look at the difference!
Here are the materials I’ve used:
1. Ikea fabric remnant
2. Dressmaker scissors
3. Staple gun
4. Upholstery tacks & hammer (optional)
Step 1: Place corkboard face down onto wrong side of Ikea fabric. Cut fabric to size, leaving a 2″ allowance all around.
Step 2: Trim corners to reduce bulk when folded.
Step 3: Fold fabric along the edge of the corkboard and staple into place. Staple the opposite side that you’ve just done and keep fabric taut by pulling it tightly before stapling. I stapled the long side egdes first, then the top and bottom edges.
Step 4: (Optional) Lightly tap the upholstery tacks along the edge of the corkboard. To stop the paint from chipping off the tacks, cover the head of your hammer with fabric or felt and use a rubber band to hold in place.
Now proudly display your corkboard in the room of your choice.
