Just maybe, I should've tried to get the wrinkles out? Anyway, this is a quick project (my kinda project) that offers some vertical organization. We're a house of "stackers." Stacks of bills, stacks of papers, stacks of files, stacks of clothes. You get the idea. Bulletin boards help.
Here's what you'll need:
: bulletin board
: fabric (I used linen from Premier Fabrics).
: poly batting or sweat shirt fabric (Sorry, I can't remember the proper term....jersey?)
: fabric scissors (I accidentally stole this pair from a local fabric store and keep forgetting to take them back. See the tassel? That's to remind whoever uses them that they DON'T belong to you!)
: staple gun
: push pins
: coke zero (very important)
1. Cut the poly batting to cover only the front of your board. (This board has been recovered multiple times and the batting has been reused each time).
2. Whatever size board you have, allow an additional 3" to cover the frame of your board.
Here's what the front side looks like.
3. Staple your corners first. Rotate - left top, right bottom, right top, left bottom. This keeps the fabric tight and helps to avoid having slack.
4. Fold down one side and staple.
5. Fold down other side. Staple. Rotate corners.
6. If you haven't kept hydrated, take a sip.....
7. This is what it will look like after you've stapled the corners. Rotating again, staple the sides a couple times each. The more you staple the tighter the fit.
8. Trim edges.
These are push pins I found at the container store. Wish I would've bought more. Cute push pins are hard to come by.
This board is for my 17 year old son. He didn't really appreciate his initial. Not cool. I told him once you start using the pins, there won't be a "K" anymore. Oh.
There you have it! It probably could use some more staples in back.....I'll get right on that.
If you want some more "how-to's," head on over to....
