The first thing I did after laying the fabric over the board was iron it so there were no creases or wrinkles. When you have the fabric in place, stretch it and put a thumbtack in each corner to hold in place.
Continue adding thumbtacks around the board pulling the fabric tight as you go. This was a tedious process and my thumb began to hurt after the first package of tacks. Of course, when I was almost finished my husband asked me why I was not using a tack hammer. I highly recommend it because the edge of my thumb still hurt the next day!
When all of your tacks have been added turn the board over and stretch the fabric in the back and staple down. I used lots of staples to make sure it does not come loose.
Add picture wire for hanging.
