Speaking of school (check out my post here), I decided it was high time to get an organized space going. Since moving back in the with the folks last spring, my space is somewhat limited. But with Sister #2 off at college, I decided to commandeer her desk area, and give it a little inexpensive face lift.
Here's what I started with:
|Gotta love the outdated calendar and the Gandhi Poster!|
Home I went, happy as could be with my organization goodies. First thing I did was iron the fabric to make sure there were no wrinkles.
Next up, it I plugged in the trusty old glue gun, and let it heat up.
Then, I measured my fabric and cut a piece big enough to cover the magnetic board. Then I spread out the fabric, put the magnetic board on top and glued around the edges. Once I got to the corners, I trimmed the sides and wrapped like a present, gluing as I went.
|Wrap the corner like a present|
|If you plan to hang your board, steer clear of the nail holes|
|Sorry for ALL the crooked pictures...it's my lack of picture taking abilities, the room is straight!|
|Again with the crooked picture taking...ahhh|
|Because my board is propped against the wall, the boxes are resting on the table, but they have hefty magnets and would stick to the board if it was hanging on a wall.|
