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 are, 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:
Create a frame to your desired size, then dry if it onto your bulletin board material of choice, trace and cut. I had some fibreboard from a previous project I hadn’t thrown out. It pays to hoard!
These are $2 sandbags from the hardware store. I only needed one. I cut one apart for single thickness and hot glued the two sections to the board from behind.
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?
How to install:
Screw fibreboard onto the wall.
Attach each board by placing on wall around the fibre board and screw in. Way too easy!
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.
