bulletin board *take 2*

Remember the empty frame I found at a yard sale over the summer for $2 that used to have a mirror in it? (on the floor)
It also got a makeover last weekend with some of the leftover cork from the ugly bulletin board, a new coat of black, and some fun green print fabric:

Now it hangs above our coats in our want-to-be mudroom/back entryway waiting to be used for keys, your cute Christmas card photos you sent us, inspirational words, who knows?
Under $10 and under an hour? Most definitely.

  9. this is GREAT! so you cut the cork board, staple fabric to it, then how do you attach the board to the frame? do you just make it snug enough to stay or do you use some kind of adhesive? i can't wait 'til garage sale season so i can get one of my very own!!

  13. Kristal~yes, I just cut the cork so it made a pretty snug fit, and then there were some nails that held the mirror in that I pushed back, and then added a few more staples all around the edges for good measure. Good luck!

  16. Awesome makeover! And my favorite kind ...inexpensive, quick, easy and looks GREAT! Did you spray paint the frame or use some other type paint? I'm forever redo'ing items ...but me and paint are NOT 'friends'. Everyone else makes it look SOOOOOO easy!
