Bulletin Board Makeover

fabric covered bulletin board

I inherited a really nice, large, wood-framed bulletin board from my parents and it sat unused in our basement for several years because the bulletin board was covered with an old green felt. Blah and blech.

I gave it a little makeover with some fabric from a local quilting shop and put it up above the computer in my office. As you can see, I don’t have much on there but I love how the happy flowers brighten things up.

You can cover most anything with fabric – bulletin boards, picture frames, coffee tables, headboards. With some great fabric and a staple gun or thumb tacks, you can make anything look fresh and new.

What do you cover with fabric?

I’m pretty sure this is it. I was really irritated that I had it for a while because I didn’t know what to do with it. Dad just brought it and left it cause he didn’t want it! But now I’m glad…

That really is cute! I’m afraid to get too into sewing and fabric crafts at the moment because I am kept so busy with knitting and crochet right now and I don’t want to overload myself with ideas but it is definitely in my future!
