DIY Bulletin Board

So I recently moved into a new role at work… and with a new role often comes a new office! I have switched over from the Lower School into the Middle and High School. A lot of people have asked me whether this is a positive change. I am still figuring that out. All I know is that I certainly needed a change from the work I was doing, so hopefully this proves to be a change for the better. So in addition to learning a new curriculum, meeting new students and finding my way around a new (and HUGE) building, I also moved into a new office.

While the office is very nice, it was seriously lacking in the furniture department. I spent the first week in my new role scouring the building for furniture that I could claim for my office. I ended up stealing an unused bookshelf from the library, a filing cabinet from an area intended for administrative office that is currently empty, chairs and a side table from the Admissions waiting area that is the floor above my office (don’t even get me started on  that one) and a bulletin board from who knows where. My 10 x 10 foot space is certainly starting to come together.

 The bulletin board is a very nice size, but I have a problem. I wanted to snaz it up a bit (either by covering it with fabric or ribbons) but it was drilled into my wall before I had a change to get my hands on it. So now, I have a large bulletin board that is hung on my wall and I am not sure how to “martha-ize” it.

         

Anyone have any good suggestions as to how I can achieve something similar to these without taking the whole bulletin board down? The best idea I could come up with was to paint the entire thing and then mod-podge some fabric onto it (e.g. cut out flowers or a design from the fabric). Anyone have anything else???

  1. you should stamp paint it—i used mod podge on my coasters and they are very tacky (as in sticky) they look good but my cups are getting stuck to them….

  2. You could paint then stencil/stamp designs; use a spray adhesive to attach fabric; use sticky Velcro in corners to attach fabric then you can change it our with mood/seasons; paint it with blackboard paint then you have a duel use board (I believe there is magnetic paint as well)

  3. Hello!!! Happy Thanksgiving! . :) :) :) :)
    Thanksgiving is 1 of my favorite holidays, and every year I like to get into the mood-extend the holiday, since it were-by reading “Thanksgiving novels.” And in addition, those stories are mostly about family, about coming together to heal old hurts and giving them thanks for the gift of love. . . . *
