DIY: Fabric-Covered Corkboard

Images above taken from fresh vintage

Everyone has an ugly corkboard they can dress up. Mine was in my office, but my cat, Floyd, liked it more as a scratching board. It had chunks of cork missing and it looked horrible! I came across a great idea from a blog called Fresh Vintage, and I got inspired to dress it up.

To make my fabric corkboard I used some really cool retro fabric that I had gotten from a flea market, some white paint and staples. Unlike Fresh Vintage, though, I took my corkboard apart, painted the frame and stapled the fabric to the back of the actual board (well, actually the front, because floyd had already destroyed it) before putting everything back together.
