I've had this little bulletin board forever and I was really tired of it, so I decided to give it a facelift.
I forgot to get the before picture, but the wood frame was the same color as the cork. This is the picture after one coat of white acrylic paint. I just applied it with a sponge brush and mixed a little bit of gold with it to give it a little antique color and sparkle.I didn't worry about getting pain on the cork since I was going to be covering it with fabric.
Once the paint was dry I covered the frame with painter's tape, sprayed a good amount of spray adhesive on the cork, and laid my fabric over it. I then used a craft knife to cut it to size. To give it a nice, finished edge I glued some ribbon around the edges of the fabric with quick-dry tacky glue.
And voila! It's a bulletin board that doubles as artwork with a little pop of color for my craft room!
Thanks for stopping by...happy creating!
