I did this with an ugly old bulletin board I had lying around the house. I think I got it from Goodwill in college for $5. It's moved with me from Montana to Eugene to Portland. But, it wasn't until my discovery of Pintrest, and seeing some ideas similar to the one I'm showing you that I thought about fixing it up.
So I found a piece of scrap fabric I had in my stash and covered the front of the cork board, and stapled the fabric to the back. Then I nailed two picture hangers to the back and hung it to the wall. Easy enough, right.
Now, my cork board was thick and sturdy enough to staple the fabric to. But if yours isn't, you'll want to glue the cork board to a piece of plywood first... then staple the fabric to the the back of the wood.
All in all, this project cost me $3 (for the picture hangers)... everything else I had lying around. And now we have a place to put our coupons and schedule stuff!
