Now all I have to do is get two strong guys to help me hang it!
Old bulletin board
Acrylic craft paint and brush
Iron or steamer (optional)
Stapler and staples
Ribbon (I used burlap ribbon found here)
How I Slogged Through It:
First, I painted the trim. The acrylic paint allows the wood grain to show through, which made it look like a bright cherry stain. Use another kind of paint if you don't want the wood grain to show through. I used only one coat and it looked exactly as I wanted it. Don't worry if the paint gets on the cork; you want to make sure the inside of the trim is painted also, and the fabric will cover the paint on the cork.
