Trash to Treasure- Cork Board

Found at a thrift store for $3. I cleaned off as much of the marker as I could, took off the back panel/cork, covered with my extra fabric from the Easy place mats tutorial and replaced the cork/back panel. Pretty cute, huh?

Try this same technique to spice up an old picture frame, a dated clock, a shelf or a wooden calendar holder. Never underestimate the power of an awesome fabric!
