Instructions

Step 1

Have a Lowe's associate cut the MDF panel to a 4 foot x 4 foot square.

Good to Know

A full sheet of 3/4-inch thick MDF actually measures close to 49 inches x 97 inches, so be sure to trim that extra inch off the width of the full panel at the same time you're cutting it 4 feet long.

Step 2

Position the cork squares on the panel to check that they fit. Then apply adhesive to the back of each tile and press it in place on the backer.

Step 3

Turn the panel over and measure 8 inches in from each side and 4 inches down from the top to mark positions for the two picture hangers. Drill 1/16-inch pilot holes and screw the hangers to the panel.

Step 4

Using a level, drive two nails or install two heavy-duty wall anchors 32 inches apart where you want to hang the corkboard.

Good to Know

Hangers are screwed onto the back of the panel 32 inches apart for a reason. That way, you can drive nails through the drywall and into two wall studs to support the nearly 50-pound weight of this corkboard.
