Being a designer means my life is full of fabric samples, paint chips and torn out magazines pages. Usually they land in the kitchen or dining area and usually they are treated like placemats, surfaces for hot plates or worse. My solution is a fabric covered bulletin board.
The board was previously used in my son's room but he didn't want it anymore and it was begging for a makeover.
I started by giving it 2 coats of black gloss spray paint.
TIP - If you are using light coloured fabric, cover the cork before spray painting so the paint doesn't show through.I used some leftover Koto fabric which you might recall was an obsession of mine last year when I declared my love for Alexander Henry (the manufacturer). Spray glue would work but I was out so hot glue stepped in. I ironed the fabric and smoothed it out so there were no wrinkles. I pinned it in place and glued it around all the edges.
I added a very thin trim just to finish it off.
