Tutorial Tuesday: Fabric Covered Bulletin Board


I have a lot of vintage frames, from yard sales, and many of them do not have any glass or backing.  I already made chalkboards with some of them and this time I decided to try a bulletin board covered with fabric.  


I found an old bulletin board at a yard sale this past weekend for $1, that was the big enough for one of my large, vintage frames.  Mr. Rubbish took it out of the frame and trimmed the board down with his jigsaw to fit my vintage frame perfectly.  I know you can buy cork board in rolls at craft stores, but I prefer to buy used, when I can. 


To cover the cork board with fabric, just pull it over the board tightly and staple it to the back with a basic staple gun.  So easy!  

Do you remember the Paris map fabric that I used to reupholster this bench?  I originally bought this fabric to recover a chair for my Parisian friend, Jenni.  The chair frame got warped and I could not fix it, so I made her this bulletin board instead.  

I painted the frame black and distressed the edges before putting the fabric-covered cork board inside.  

You can glue or nail the bulletin board to the frame.  I just took mine to a frame shop and had them attach it for me.  It took them about two minutes and it only cost me a few dollars.

Lovely! Hello Amanda, thx for coming by my joint! The paint I used is Annie Sloan Duck Egg chalk paint and I used the darkest of the stains...remember to wipe off the stain mixture, not like pure wax at all. Send me your finished project. Would love to see!

Hay poco margen para la sorpresa.
Mimado por el cuerpo t茅cnico, sus compaeros y la afici贸n, que grita "Gio", "Gio" con sus acciones m谩s espectaculares, el jugador franquicia de los mallorquines se encuentra en su momento m谩s dulce.

Yo como hincha no deseo otra cosa que eso: que River empiece de una buena vez a recuperar el lugar que indica su historia", agreg di con Ol Enzo se refiri tambi a Rogelio Funes Mori.
Que podemos esperar de un equipo, con una plantilla mas bien mediocre, ya que a mi parecer los unicos que de verdad valen y tienen calidad y tecnica suficiente como para triunfar en cualquier otro club de Europa son, El KUN, Jose Antonio Reyes ( Le pese a quien le pese ), el chavalito De Gea y . el Urugasshho, cuando termine de encontrarse a si mismo esta temporada. El resto de la plantilla a mi parecer es mas bien corta tirando a cortisima en lo que a futbol se refiere.. [url=http://www.camisetasdefutboles.com/]camisetas futbol baratas[/url] Tambi茅n os digo, llegado este punto, que como en todas las cosas luego hay un poco de verdad y otro poco de mentira. Es probable que Alexandra no se esforzara todo lo que pod铆a por salir bien en la segunda foto, qui茅n sabe por qu茅 motivos. De hecho, su gesto serio empeora el resultado final como si se hubiera arrepentido de posar en el calendario malo y quisiera enmendar el error.
Reci asumido el poder, Videla, Agosti y, sobre todo, Emilio Massera, el marino de la Junta, tal vez el m feroz de los represores y, sin duda, el de mayor ambici pol vieron en el Mundial su gran escaparate. Se cre una sociedad organizadora, el EAM y se estrecharon los lazos con la FIFA para asegurarse que nada har cambiar la sede del torneo..

As铆 que, como alternativa a la hora de bajar la factura de nuestras compras de moda, no est谩 nada mal pasarse por las tiendas Lefties y echar un vistazo.
