Have a Lowe's associate cut the MDF panel to a 4 foot x 4 foot square.
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.
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.
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.
Using a level, drive two nails or install two heavy-duty wall anchors 32 inches apart where you want to hang the corkboard.
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.
