Making Of: A Structural Pinboard

A simple guide to creating your own structural pinboard just like the one I have in my hallway.




Step 1 (Optional)

Sand the wooden frame and paint it whatever colour you prefer. This step is optional. I only painted mine, because I didn’t like the shade of wood the frame that I ordered came in.

Step 2

Put your pinboard cork-side-up on a flat surface and lay your fabric across it.

Step 3

Pull the fabric onto the pinboard, pinching and arranging it to suit your preference. Cut fabric to size if necessary.

Step 4

Using a hot glue gun attach the fabric to the pinboard making sure to work from the centre to the edges using plenty of glue wherever the fabric touches the pinboard.
