Corkboard Makeover DIY

I just moved into a new apartment, so many home diy's to come!

I found a corkboard, and the frame was falling off, so I thought how could I still use this, but make it pretty.
All you need is a corkboard, any size, fabric (about 3 inches bigger than the corkboard on each edge), stapler/staple gun.

I used a thicker upholstery fabric, so that I could use push pins, and it would not create noticeable holes, and it is more durable.  

Start by ironing the fabric, so there aren't fold creases.
 Place the corkboard, so there is about 2-3 inches on each edge.
 Cut any excess fabric.

 Fold the bottom edge up and staple the fabric, then do the same thing to the opposite side.
 I used a normal stapler opened up.
 For the corners, I cut out a triangle, like the picture below - this creates a cleaner corner fold.
 Repeat this to every corner, and staple in place.
 Very simple!
 I got gold push pins and added glitter to some of them with some mod podge.

 To make this E, I printed out an E using word art on word, and glued it to some cardboard. Then I cut it out, covered it in mod podge and added some glitter.
 This May monogram calendar is from For Chic Sake and can be found here.

  1. These ironing boards are easy to carry around and set up in a confined space, which makes them popular with dorm students. folding ironing board
