How I Made a Bulletin Board I Love

I  want to share with you how I made the bulletin board that I mentioned in the last post.  I found a diy to share with you.

A custom made bulletin board or pin board (as she calls it) using your choice of fabric that is put in a frame you also hand pick

I found the instructions to this on "i heart organizing" by Jen (Really? another Jen/Jenn?), that is basically how I made my bulletin board.  Click on the image of her bulletin board to be led to her instructions.  

I used a 40% off coupon to buy a frame I liked.  I found a frame that was exactly the soft white color I wanted, so I didn't need to paint it.  But, if you want to customize the color, it is very easy to find a can of spray paint and do that step quickly.  Just make sure to lightly sand before you paint.

I also used a 40% off coupon to buy the roll of cork and applied it to the back of the frame as she did, following the rest of her steps.  It was such a simple project and I have a pin board that I love!!

I hope you have fun with this project too.  

I also found this idea for your pin board that I think is a good one. . .

Can you see the pocket that was created?  I think this gives a little cleaner look that I like!  You can click on this image and be linked to the post that has the instructions on "Driven by Decor" by Kris.  She used a cork bulletin board instead of buying a picture frame, so she only had to cover the cork with the fabric of her choice, saving a few steps.

I love having the clutter on my desk cleared off and a fun fabric covered bulletin or pin board that adds color and pattern, while also keeping things organized and out of the way.

Have fun creating an organized and inspiring home. . .
