I’ve been meaning to post more about some of the DIY projects I’ve been undertaking lately. I’ve had a few bulletin boards lying around and being sparsely used since college, looking all plain and not fabulous. So, inspired by Maggie Rose’s bulletin board guide I gave them a bit of a new look for my fledgling home office.
I bought some discount fabric at Joann’s – a plain brown and a floral print full of deep pink to compliment. The floral ended up being a bit… much… for the larger board, so it ended up going on the smaller one for a pop of color on the wall.

I love the detail and texture of the upholstery tacks!
The larger board.
Let me pass on a tip, just in case anyone decided to undertake this project themselves: USE A STAPLER. I was having a hard time finding ours (it’s seldom used and normally hidden in a random drawer), so in my infinite wisdom, I thought it would be appropriate to try and use my strong crafting glue.
Do. Not. Use. (unless you’re going for epic failure)
One hand solidly glued to a bulletin board and a destroyed half-yard of fabric later, I determined it was finally time to locate that stapler. Learning lessons so others don’t have to!
Anyway, I love them and they make my home office look awesome (and my desk more organized)!
