Fabric Covered Cork board In Dining Area

Happy Monday and Canada day too everyone!

I hope you enjoyed your weekend, we were busy Saturday and Sunday, so today we are relaxing by preparing healthy goodies in the kitchen. Because, I’ve had time to relax, I’ve had time to let my mind wonder and forgot about today’s post, so I am posting a little bit later than I usual.

Do you remember that last month I participated to a DITTO’s DIY party and I linked my gold home office accessories to the Go for the Gold challenge, it was a fun party to link up to and had the chance to see what other bloggers were working on. This month’s theme is Framed Fabric , so I framed this fun FREDRIKA fabric from IKEA that I purchased a long time ago around a cork board:

I have this small wasted corner in our dining area next to the patio doors that needed to be filled with something:

DIY project framed second fabric board

and for the longest time, I’ve been wanting to fill this corner with something other than just the wicker chair and my ‘good moms, happy kids’ wood sign:

DIY project framed second fabric board

this cork board was the perfect addition, it’s a nice, inexpensive and happy fabric and I’ve had it with me since last year:

I added these inexpensive frames to the cork board, they were white but I spray painted them in different colors so they could pop. I got six frames from the dollar store and used the rest of them for another project that I will be posting shortly:

Now, I’ve added pictures and magazine pages of projects that inspire me, even greeting cards and a small place to leave notes for hubby and myself. You might have also notice that there is a roll of scotch tape pinned to the cork board, it’s because I can never seem to find any when I need it and I wanted to have one roll available without having to go upstairs to my craft room. So now it’s there, visible and I use it to tape my notes :

I really love having this cork board in our dining area and because the fabric is not expensive I can change it with the seasons if I choose:

It’s very easy to switch fabrics, you just need to cut to size the fabric of your choice. Don’t forget to include about an inch and a half extra fabric on each side of the board:

next, you wrap it around the cork board and staple it to the back with a staple gun:

Now, here is a sneak peak of the other project I mentioned to you earlier, I will be sharing it with you later this week:

Wish you a beautiful week everyone!

Thanks again for stopping by!

  • Amy Mayen says:

    Oh, you are too fabulous! I’ve been meaning to do one of these forever! Knowing me, I’d find a way to mess it up…but I’m inspired!

    July 1, 2013 at 5:08 pm
    • now at home mom says:

      🙂 Thank you Amy! 🙂 I’m sure you could do it and it would look pretty with all the fabric you have to choose from! 🙂 just staple it, I’m sure you would love one of these maybe in your sewing corner?!

      I love this fabric too because of it’s colors and design, I still have lots of it remaining, I think, I will use it in my craft room! 🙂

  • memyselfandkids.com says:

    Looks like a nice corner of the house with the new addition.
    Btw, you see the like button worked.
    I’m curious do you think of projects just so you can blog about them or do you just naturally do these things and then blog about them?

    July 1, 2013 at 5:58 pm
    • now at home mom says:

      Thank you Larry! & my button is weird don’t know what happened, I just tested it and it worked for me too 🙂
      For the projects: I do both! when I need something/make it I blog about it.
      I used to do all this before blogging but since maternity leave I do more because I’m always home so I see every area of my house as a project.
      I would love to tackle of them, specially our main bathroom but I can’t!
      I also think about it for the blog, like this last project. It’s a challenge and I love those because it makes me think about how I can integrate them in our house! 🙂
      You should see me when I’m watching TV in our living room, I stare at everything around me and tell hubby about everything I want to do, change or buy for our house.
      I think I drive him a bit crazy! 🙂 ha!ha! 🙂

    Hi Ingrid. I am so impressed with your creativity and how it comes out looking fabulous on a budget! I am also quite enjoying your conversational commentaries in your blogs. It feels like we are having a phone conversation. I am looking to making something similar for my craft room when I have the time. You have given me a great idea to work with! Take care, Thea

    July 1, 2013 at 6:38 pm

    Hi Ingrid! How Creative and Frugal but above all Pretty! I’ve been sitting on some fabric for a while and this would be the perfect project to make for my laundry room! I spend way to many hours there and I need some idea organization tool there! Thank you for sharing your creativity with us,

    Oh! I love, love, love the fabric covered cork boards! I’m going to definitely try this for my office. The fabrics you chose are so colorful and pretty. I think that’s going to be the challenge for me. Finding beautiful fabrics like those here that don’t cost an arm and a leg. Your house must be so beautiful filled with all these lovely and creative ideas! 😀

    August 1, 2013 at 5:08 pm
    • now at home mom says:

      Vashti 🙂 you are always so sweet and kind, thank you very much for these sweet comments 🙂 I love fabrics and I have a couple of them in the house that I haven’t use them yet; I love the ones from IKEA (they are less expensive) 😉 thanks again Vashti!
