I was off from work last week so I took some time to relax, see friends, do projects around the house and relax. I’m back with my burlap bulletin board that I’ve been wanting to make for quite some time.
Back in June I visited a friend in Barrington, RI and she took me to this fabulous consignment shop. I found this wooden frame for about $2 and I knew it’d be perfect for my bulletin board project. I already had burlap and found a cork board for $2 at a thrift store. Trimmed in such a lovely lace ribbon.
I decided on a Krylon spray paint called “Pimento” to accent my office space with. I gave the wood frame three even coats of spray paint and allowed it proper time to dry.
While it was drying I cut out the cork board from the metal frame.
I wrapped the cork board in burlap and then secured it into the wood frame.
Using both my hot glue gun and staple gun I got the whole thing rigged together.
I hung it on the wall above my desk and I love it. It’s the perfect size for my small desk and I LOVE the color of it. It’s pretty boring to just photograph a bulletin board on a bare wall, so there’s a close up of the color and detail below.
I’m slowly making progress on my office space so stay tuned for more small space organizing tips. Do you have any great office organizing tips to share? Something that works for you? Something that doesn’t?
