Hessian sack covered cork pin board

Hessain sack covered cork boardI recently re-covered my cork notice board as part of my effort to spruce up and de-clutter my workspace. An old hessian potato sack  – found at a car boot sale last year and hanging around ever since – was perfect for the job. Simply cut the sack, or any other thick material, to about 3 to 4cm larger than the cork notice board and use a staple gun to attach the material to the back of the notice board. Secure all the way around the edge with staples whilst keeping the fabric taut and minding your fingers! Once finished, hang up on the wall and pin lots of beautiful and inspirational stuff to it.

Here’s how mine looked:

    This is a great idea, I recently bought a cork-board, when it is old and tired I shall give this a go. (p.s. I don’t mean to offend but there is a spelling error – keeping the fabric taut). And I happen to love Maris Piper potatoes!
