Fast forward to our move and my trip to IKEA, and I came home with scads of their beautiful and cheap fabric, I knew how to fix it. Simple!
- cork board
- staple gun & staples
- fabric that is 1.5-2 in. longer than your board (on all sides)
- hammer (optional)
Iron fabric to get all the wrinkles out of it.
Lay fabric right side down on floor or table, wherever you are working.
Put cork board right side down, making sure there is an even 1.5-2 inches of fabric peeking out of all 4 corners underneath the board.
Start on top, using staple gun to staple fabric around board frame and using your hammer to pound down any wonky staples. Staple every 3 inches until all 4 corners are completed!
