Recovering Old Bulletin Boards With Drop Cloth Fabric

10:45:00 AM

When most people are asleep on a Sunday morning, I'm up and working on my next project.

Fixing up the old shabby bulletin boards in the kitchen this morning.

I bought a pain drop cloth at Home Depot the other day. 

I was planning on recovering pillows for my living room but I had a better idea for it.

 Step one was to cut off the finished edging all the way around the canvas... save it! (You're gonna need it later)

I measured the bulletin board inside the frame and cut the canvas to the exact size of the cork.

Next I sprayed the back of the canvas with spray adhesive and set it onto the cork, be sure to smooth it down. 

I needed the staple gun and sharp scissors for this job.

I stapled around the edges to secure the fabric. 

Next, the glue gun, I used the low temp gun so I wouldn't get burned! 

I used the cut edging I removed at the beginning and glued it all the way around the edges of the bulletin board to hide any rough edges.

The corners of the edging were rough so I rolled a 6" piece of edging to make a rosette and glued it into each corner.

And here is the finished bulletin board project, directly across from this one is another bulletin board I needed to finish next.

On this one I covered the entire bulletin board, frame and all.

I measured a piece of drop cloth about 3" larger than the bulletin board and stapled it with the staple gun on the back.

I added rosettes in the 4 corners to finish off the look.


Here is bulletin board #2. 

I'm really happy with the finished products, they are simple, kind of shabby and easy to do.

And I even have enough drop cloth fabric left to 
re-cover the pillows next!
