I made two display boards, both of which are sized to fit within the picture frame molding on my kitchen cabinets. I haven't provided dimensions because your display boards will vary in size according to your own needs.
The foam core boards I used originally came from a previous project, so you will notice in one of the pictures that there is roll-type cork board adhered to the foam core. Please ignore the cork board. It is not necessary for the project listed here.
I realized afterward that I really should have sized the foam core boards so that they completely filled in the space within the picture frame molding of my kitchen cabinets (ie, so that there is no space at the top), so you may want to consider this if you use them for this purpose.
Step 1: You Will Need:
- Fabric of choice - cut large enough to cover your display boards, plus about an inch on each side to wrap around edges of foam core board.
- 3M Super 77 spray adhesive - this stuff is indispensable for projects around the house.
- Super glue
- Utility knife
- Measuring tape
- Binder clips - I like the shiny silver ones instead of the boring black ones. Or, you could disassemble the black ones if you already have them and spray paint them different colors for fun!
- Small finish nails
- Rubber gloves (optional)
- Newspaper - to protect your work surface.
