CHEVRON WHITE/CORK BOARD- Hello Kitty Makeover
THURSDAY, MAY 16, 2013
This is the last of the Hello Kitty how to's
The rest of them are here
This was originally just a white board thrifted for $0.75 minus a discount
which came out to-$0.41 +tx!!!
That's right, under a buck!
This is the before look
I cleaned off the stained board as best as possible.
I then covered it so I could paint it white(craft paint).
While that dried I cut cork board measuring 1/2 of the length of the board.
I still wanted to keep part of the white board.
I had picked up these corkboard sheets for pennies at the salvage sale.
I used my X-acto knife to cut 2 sheets, hot glued them together and then started to mark off the chevron print.
This time I used thick paper to make a triangle and marked lightly with pencil where I wanted my peaks.
I kinda winged it when it came to how close to each other
and how far down.
I painted the outer parts a brighter pink and the inside a lighter one,
including the edges of both layers.
One everything was dry, I distressed the frame a bit and used the glue gun
to attach the cork to the frame.
