Hi everyone...I've been moving my sewing room around a bit and thought I would share little projects with you as I go along.
This is the big book case in my sewing room. Click here if you want to see the last year's post of my sewing room ideas.
I moved some of the shelves around and this is the final results of the middle portion...I think. You know me with moving things around at the drop of a hat! Lol. More to come on the rest of the room.
Here is a picture of the center bookcase with the 2 shelves moved or removed. Sorry for the ironing board mess...it was mid cleaning.
Now to cover the back with cork.
You could just hang a pre made cork board if it fits. I had these cork tiles that are 12 x 12 inches. They were over a work table in the previous sewing room post.
Just cover them with fabric for a prettier look.
The dark brown cork squares are about 1/4 inch think...
I used 2 of the thinner light cork to equal the brown I had.
Cut fabric an inch or two larger than cork...
Hot glue down 2 opposite ends.
Then cut away a section in the four corners to reduce the thickness.
Fold over the edge like wrapping a gift and hot glue remaining ends.
Now to attach to bookcase back.
Velcro dots...adhesive kind or you can glue them on
Attach dots to the corners. I then attached the opposite dot for placement on the bookcase.
Press on to back of bookcase.
For the odd shaped size, I just trimmed the cork boards to fit and then covered them.
All covered up!! I used busy fabric design to hide the seams.
This bookcase is right behind my sewing table...my back is to this cork board , so it's perfect for me as a quilt design wall or idea board for patterns.
Notes or pictures of inspiration...
or to hold up quilt blocks.
If you want to make this solely for quilt design wall, you could cover any type board in flannel.
and to end the post...thought I would share.
You know I like to work on the floor for most all my projects...Click here for the Knee Pad post. Thought I would share with you what happens when I was working on the floor with a large ice coffee and my hubby walks in and didn't see it.!! That'll teach me!
