Here’s What You’ll Will Need:

Picture Frame

Cork Board/ Sound Choice Board

Fabric

Batting

Staple Gun

Scissors, Ruler, Exacto knife

Directions:

1. Measure frame and cut board to fit (if the frame has a backing you can trace that size). We buy the 4′ x 8′ sound choice board from the hardware store or cork boards from the thrift store for our board.

2. Make sure the board fits in frame after cut, not too snug because the fabric will need to wrap over the board and take up a little space.

3. Use cut board to measure how much padding you’ll need. Cut to same size.

It should look like this:

4. Staple padding onto board.

5. Use your board to measure and cut fabric allowing about 1 1/2 inches on each side.

6. Start with a long side and staple back fabric. One staple about every 2 inches.

7. Next, staple the opposite side. Be sure to pull it so there’s no wrinkles.

Playing around with size, fabric choices and nailhead trim to get the exact look and function you want for your space is great. We especially love them in our offices and by our by our entryways. Check out Sarah’s HERE.

We hope you enjoy creating your own boards and loving them as much as we do!
