Time for another DIY project! Today I'm going to share a message board that I made for my son's room. He needed something to help him keep organized with school work and all his extra curricular activities. This is definitely working and it looks great in his room.
To make this message board you will need:
1 framed bulletin/cork board
Fabric of your choice (I went with a thicker fabric here, if you decide to go with something thinner just make sure you add some batting to the back for durability)
Step 1: Sand
Lightly sand the frame so the paint will adhere to the surface.
Step 2: Paint
Begin painting all around the frame. Let Dry. Apply one more coat if needed.
Step 3: Cut Fabric
Lay the fabric over the board and cut to match the entire surface of the board.
Step 4: Fold
Fold the edges of the fabric neatly so it lays in the inside of the frame. Iron down.
Step 5: Pin
Pin down the fabric at all four corners first. Continue pinning all around the board about 1/2 " apart.
Step 6: Complete
Make sure the fabric is even all around. And...you're done!
You can choose different patterns/colors that work best in your room. This board goes well over my son's desk, which I've also refinished.
Have a great weekend!
