When I got up this morning to 40mph winds and driving rain, I knew my plans for the day had to change. The weather was so foul that my morning walk and errand run would have to wait. Instead, I decided to hunker down in my studio and try my hand at another bark cloth tack board.
I gathered together my materials: a chippy old picture frame, 1940's bark cloth, my staple gun, foam core and cork panels.
I followed the same instructions as the larger tack board I made a couple of weeks ago.
For a bulletin board like this, I like to use bark cloth because it is sturdy and its textured appearance will hide any holes created from thumb tacks.
Even when nothing is tacked to this board, its bark cloth design will be pleasing to look at and is much more interesting than fabric with a repetitive pattern would be.
I'm so pleased with how my latest tack board turned out. Isn't is pretty as a picture? And I've just listed it in my Etsy shop! Use it to display a favorite photo, note, or tear sheets for inspiration in your studio, office or craft room.
Right after I finished this blustery day project, the weather settled down here by early afternoon. I was finally able to get out for a brisk walk, but I'll have to tackle my long list of errands tomorrow.
