Bulletin BoardSeptember 11th, 2008 in projects
No matter your political persuasions, this bulletin board is
one flip-flop you'll love. One side's a
cork board; the other's a magnet board.
Many uses for one beautifully crafted display center! Perhaps I'll do a whiteboard/chalkboard combo
for the office...
Old metal store mirror stand (the mirror on ours was broken out)
2 yards fabric
Permanent spray adhesive
2 ft by 3 ft sheet of 1/4 in. plywood
120 in. of 1 by ¼ in. trim board
12 by 12 in. piece of cork (we purchased ours at an office supply store)
12 by 12 in. magnet board (we purchased ours at an office supply store)
Thumb tacks or upholstery tacks
Reciprocal saw or hand saw
Step 1: Trace size and shape of mirror pattern on to plywood.
Step 2: Slide plywood in to frame.
Step 3: Trace pattern for fabric on inside of frame.
Step 4: Cut fabric, one piece for each side.
Step 5: Apply permanent spray glue to plywood and attach fabric, smoothing out all wrinkles. Repeat on opposite side.
Step 6: Measure and cut frame pieces (miter corners) from trim board. Our frames measure 16 by 16 in.
Step 7: Spray paint frame pieces desired color.
Step 8: Sand frame pieces if desired to give a worn look.
Step 9: Attach cork and magnet boards on opposite sides with glue.
Step 10: Attach frame around cork with glue. Repeat around magnet board on opposite side.
Step 11: Fill corner gaps with wood putty and touch up with paint.
Step 12: Attach twine around perimeter of each side to give a finished look
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.
