A while ago we figured out that Forbo tack board, a product we specify often for work, would sit perfectly in the recessed panels of the door. We were able to salvage a few dark gray pieces during our new office construction in February.
The forbo pieces were scrap cut offs destined for the trash, and so they’d been stepped on and tossed around. I spent some time cleaning them off with water and a microfiber. Those microfibers are good for everything!
Going one at a time, I evenly coated the back of each piece, using a scrap piece of wood to make sure every edge and corner were covered. Then I lifted and stuck them into place. Clamping a hard surface to the forbo to ensure contact during curing was one of the trickier steps. I left the clamps on for about 20 minutes per panel:
It’s a small but functional project- and it’s been on the to-do list for a while! Check!
