DIY cheater (cork) board

This is what I like to call a cheater DIY. I see something I like and make it as cheaply as I can. Everyone has seen DIY corkboards floating around pinterest. I wanted one for my kitchen and I already had a Schumacher fabric remnant lying around and a huge frame I got for $7
I'm cheap and corkboard rolls were $30 for how much I needed, so I got creative (another word for cheap)
 Yep thats right. I glued 2 layers of foam core together, and then I laid the fabric over and stapled it into the frame. So there you go, cheater cork board for about $10 and so far its held up well with tacks.
