When you paint is dry and antiqued the next step is decorating the board with fabric. The fabric I choose was durable yet thin enough that when I flipped the fabric over I could see the chevron stripes through the back. I've found this to be extremely important and actually a necessity. I like my stripes to be straight and this is the only way I've found to do that. With the fabric flipped on the reverse align the area you would like to see on the board.
Flip to the reverse and draw a cutting line for corner to corner. Then cut your fabric. Always measure twice and cut once. No turning back.
