If you’re a usual around these parts, you probably know that I just moved into a new apartment and am looking to spruce things up! The other day I was scheming ways to dress-up my desk space and thought of doing cute bulletin boards. I had seen them in a PB Teen catalog a while back and thought they were the bees knees. And for you new readers, yes, I am 19…not 80. But I like that phrase. Anyways, they were ridiculously expensive to buy already done-up and I seriously couldn’t justify buying a $60 bulletin board. That’s straight-up crazy. So, I ventured to Target and Hobby Lobby and made my own. And guess what? The grand total was: $17.84! I have to admit, I was pretty darn impressed.
Before we embark on this lovely tutorial I just want to inform you all that I am not a crafter. Well, I guess I technically am, but I usually have no patience for DIY’s and when I find or dream-up something Pinteresty it turns out looking like a major fail. I’m happy to say that this tutorial is so easy a Kayli could do it and only took a total of 15 minutes to construct! Enjoy!
- Cork Boards from The Board Dudes available at Target
- Three-Fourths of a yard of each fabric I bought (if you were to get only one color/type of fabric this means you would then buy one and a half yards)
Pull the fabric taught and staple the first pieces of fabric to the cork board. I only used the needle in this photo to show a suggestion but for the rest of my boards only used my hands to pull the fabric and had success.
- Measuring Tape
Do you think that bulletin boards could be used to beautify an office space? What are some of your favorite ways to make a work-space fun?
