I had just a blah plain bulletin board in my office, and it was time to spiff it up. It was a simple project that makes all the difference from my original boring bulletin board.
I forgot to take a before photo of it on the wall covered in stuff like picture, but here you get the idea. Plus, when doing this project, I realized I didn’t need half the receipts and other misc. items I had tacked up there. It was some spring cleaning for the board
I went to Hobby Lobby to get a yard of gray and white fabric. I thought simple and classic. First, I ironed out all of the wrinkles.
After ironing, I sprayed the cork part of the bulletin board with spray adhesive and put the fabric down. I was sure to smooth out any wrinkles.
Next up were the little gold thumb tacks. I needed a lot more than I thought. I used a little less than 200 for this board. I decided to give a little space between each one, and I didn’t go too crazy if they were not straight. I did the best I could. And honestly, when it is hanging, it looks great. I can’t tell if one is off a tiny bit.
Once I finished pushing in all those little tacks, it was time to secure the back which was easy enough with a glue gun.
I love the custom look the board now has, and it really does help spiff up a corner in my office.
One thing I did tack right back on were some family pictures I have. One of my parents on their wedding day, and the other two are both sets of my grandparents looking all lovey dovey.
