I purchased these magnet boards from Ikea a few years ago, and have been meaning to hack them for a while now.
Here's what I did!
First, collect all the stuff I need!
- Glue gun, scissors, fabric, and magnet boards
I got my fabric from Ikea for just $8.99 a meter. I only needed one meter for this project, but I bought 2 incase I was feeling crafty in the future!
I lay out the fabric to decide how I wanted them to look. I wasn't sure if I wanted them to be all vertical, horizontal or diagonal. I decided on a little mix and match!
Then I cut the fabric to size
I busted out my duck tape before my glue gun. I figured I could just eyeball if the lines were straight.
Once I had the sides duct taped to where I wanted them, I just glued the fabric down with my hot glue gun. No science here, just a straight line of glue. And don't worry, after the first burn, the rest don't hurt that much - I got my finger good!
When you get to the corners, just pinch them like this...
Put a bead of glue on each side of the pinch and then push down
Yup, there's Marley. He's the "Where's Waldo" of my blog.
A lot of my decor and craft supplies are in the toy room closet, so I like that I have a little display board of my own for paint samples and whatever else. Too high for the kiddies to reach. Haha.
