I was called upon from my church for a very special project. They desired to have a bulletin board of some type and asked if I’d be up to giving it a go. Would I!
My premise with these kinds of projects is, use what you have. So here’s what I came up doing just that. Feel free to put your own spin on it to create something similar!
This 5′ tall x 30″wide bulletin board was designed to be stationed in an area where you’d stand to write notes before using the board. The shelf was the perfect addition. And here’s how I did it:
You’ll need: (list contains Amazon affiliate links)
1. Decide on your board size by laying down planks on or around a large sheet of fibre board.
2. Cover fibre board with burlap, then staple from behind.
3. Attach fibre board directly to wall.
4. Mount boards directly onto wall around the board.
(Paint boards first if desired, I painted them in black chalkboard paint)
5. Add twine embellishments by zig zag positioning, knotting the ends, then attaching with screws.
6. Use clothes pins to clip notes, or pins to attach notes to board.
Want a shelf? No prob! Find a board that will reach your framework. I didn’t even cut this random board to size. Sand and go.
Hoarders unite once again.
Jute was cut and knotted, then screwed into place through the knots.
These galvanized containers were from Ikea but I could totally see tin cans or mason jars being equally adorable.
Kinda cute, isn’t it?
The frame was designed to advertise the reason for the board. Here it is in the church before it got filled up with its intent.
It was a VERY simple project that I personally didn’t have a home for. I’m so glad I had the opportunity to invent it for another that did!
Like weird boards? Here’s a mattress spring bulletin board I made a few years back.
I rather wanna make more.
