Upcycled Alabama Cork Board

Chris came home earlier this summer with an old cork board that had clearly seen better days.  This cork board was well loved.  "Can you fix this up for me?" are the words that come out of his mouth.

Yep.  I love my husband, but he brings me home a million little projects.

I let the cork board sit for a little while until I could decide exactly how I was going to salvage it.  Luckily I had purchased some University of Alabama fabric last time we were in Alabama with plans to make my husband something for Christmas.
 I decided the quick and easy approach was the best one to cross this project off my list.  A little black spray paint to cover the old wooden frame and I adhered the fabric directly onto the cork with a little spray adhesive.  A quick afternoon project that he loves.  Roll Tide!


  1. I love this idea! Great fabric too! Roll Tide!
