I am excited to get to share a some step-by-step instructions on how to re-cover an old pin board to a totally swoon-worthy and functional new decor item.

These boards need not be boring and hidden away. All you need to jazz up your space is the following…

  • A pin board (old or new)
  • A staple gun
  • Fabric of your choice/li>
