Cork Board Make Over DIY

 I apologize in advance for not thinking through the fact that the craft blended so well into my carpet... it makes it a bit more difficult to see, but alas, it is the way it is!

My biggest problem with decorating is figuring out what to hang on my walls. I get SO nervous I usually live for months with empty blank walls. As usual though, I was sitting on my couch and an idea hit me. I have an excess of cork boards and some pretty amazing vintage fabric. Nearly 20 minutes laters, here is what I made for the blank wall above my desk:

These are the materials I used:

cork board
Loctite spray glue
vintage fabric
x-acto knife
acrylic paint/paintbrush

1. Measure and cut fabric to size of board.
2. Spray board with glue and affix fabric. (photo fail, sorry Peeps!)
3. Trim excess fabric by cutting along edge of cork board.
4. Paint frame of cork board.

I found some (better) examples on Pinterest... an idea is hardly ever original, eh?
