How to Make a Custom Bulletin Board {Take 2}

I’m on my way today to help a friend organize and spiff up her basement.  I’m so excited I can’t hardly stand it…(and I mean that in all seriousness!).

{Spending the day with a friend + doing something I love = Does it get any better than this??:)}

I’m reposting a tutorial I posted last week.  Somehow it was one of three posts that didn’t survive the switch to WordPress.  I didn’t want to lose it completely, so thought I would just repost it while it was still copy-able.  So, I apologize if it is a “repeat” for you.  But, if you’re discovering it just today, it is the way I made a quick custom bulletin board for my new craft room:

1.  Cut a piece of fabric cut to fit a plain ol’ bulletin board.

2.  Staple it around the edges. (A regular paper stapler flattened out will even work.)


3.Nail a small nail directly in the top, middle of the front of the bulletin board frame.


4.  Take the glass and matting out of a picture frame that is the same size as the bulletin board.  If it doesn’t already have a hanger on the back, place  a sawtooth hanger in the middle of the top of the frame.

Hang the sawtooth hanger on the bulletin board nail (that’s on the front of it) and voila! a custom bulletin board.

Whenever you get tired of the fabric pattern, you can easily change it out for a completely new look.

    . Reducing the сlutter meanѕ stopping long enough to really focus on the other person and thеir needs.
    It might be taking a stroll ԁown the road, mind empty,
    looking at those familiar buildings we sеe every day and noticing
    sοmеthing new about them we’d never seen before.
