Instructions

Flip Board:

  1. Paint the pre-cut plywood and decorative molding the color of your choice and allow paint to dry before moving on to the next step
  2. Place the 30-inch and 40-inch molding around the edges of the plywood to make the outer frame. Hammer 1-inch finishing nails every 4 inches around the edge of the plywood to anchor each piece of molding in place

  1. Temporarily place the flip board in the center of the frame, making sure there is an equal amount of space on all 4 sides between the edge of the plywood.

  1. Place the 25-inch and 35-inch decorative molding around the edges of the flip board to make a second inner frame. Hammer 1-inch finishing nails every 4 inches around the edge of the flip board to anchor each piece of molding to the plywood
  2. The flip board has two cutouts for handles at the top, which will be hung on two drawer handles. Hold the flip board in the frame and line up the drawer handles in the flip board handle cutouts. Drill 1/8-inch pilot holes through the screw holes in the handle and into the plywood
  3. Secure the handles to the plywood with 1/2-inch wood screws. Hang your flip board in the frame on the drawer handles

  4. Turn the backboard over and cut off the excess corkboard and burlap around the backboard with scissors
