I made this magnet board years ago with my Mom at a Super Saturday and it's really useful and I always thought it looked just fine until I saw a beautiful fabric covered one. This project quickly went on my to-do list and I finally got around to working on it.
I hit up the Fabric Addict (my favorite store) with every intention of finding something red to go inside the frame but instead the purple jumped out at me. I love the pattern and I love the color, not sure how well it fits in my dining room but I decided I didn't care.
This was a really easy project. I took apart the magnet board and used the sheet metal as my fabric guide. Since my fabric was directional and needed to go on straight I traced around the metal with a sharpie to help me stick it down property once I'd sprayed it. I'd bought just enough fabric so I only had to cut one side. I then used spray adhesive on both the fabric and the metal and then I stuck them together, wrapping quickly around the back before my spray dried. There were a couple spots on the back that didn't stay stuck very well but since it gets put back in the frame it didn't matter. I closed it all back up, put my magnets back on and called it done.
I love the new look.
Looking at these pictures makes me think perhaps it's time to re-paint my frame, it's looking a little rough. Some other day.
