  1. Tape off the outer border of the Ikea® VÄGGIS Noteboard using the Frog Tape®.
  2. Paint the cork with the Black DecoArt® Americana® Acrylic Paint using your standard paint brush.
  3. Let the paint dry.
  4. Spray the back of the Stencil Ease® Cornelius Wall Painting Stencil very lightly with the Stencil Ease® Repositionable Adhesive Spray and let the adhesive dry.
  5. Apply the stencil to the surface of the noteboard.
  6. Adhere painters tape to the corkboard under each triangle registration mark and mark them.
  7. Pour some of the DecoArt® Americana® White Wash Acrylic Paint onto the plate.
  8. Load your Stencil Ease® 5/8” White Bristle Stencil Brush with White Wash DecoArt® Americana® Acrylic Paint and then swirl the brush onto your paper towel until it seems like all of the paint is removed. This creates a dry brush and leaves the perfect amount of paint on your bristles. Using a dry brush prevents paint from seeping under the cut-outs of the stencil. This part of the process is essential if you would like clean/ crisp lines when you lift your stencil.
  9. Either stipple (lightly tapping over the stencil cut-outs) or swirl the paint onto the noteboard.
  10. You can immediately remove the stencil and line up the registration marks for your next repeat, either vertically or horizontally. The instructions on how to use the registration mark system are included with your stencil.
  11. Repeat this process until you have completely covered the board.
  12. Allow the note board to dry completely overnight.

These boards are so easy to make. They keep the little pieces of scrap paper and post it notes from cluttering up the house and piling up in the corners of teenager's bedrooms. I love the idea of using frog tape because it keeps the paint from bleeding, and gives you crisp clean lines. These are great for offices too.
