What is it about chalkboards?! I love the look of one, even though I don’t really desire to write on one with chalk! Anyone try the chalk pens yet? I’ve yet to but sure want to.
I think I love them because they help anchor a room feature so well.
And if painted black, look SO good against reclaimed wood… of course.
For this reason alone, painting out bulletin boards is just a great idea! However for added texture, I like adding one more thing to them…
… and that’s twine.
I love collecting this stuff in all weights because it comes in so handy for hanging, etc.
I’ve done this twine treatment on THIS larger chalkboard I made awhile back too.
Then add a few reclaimed wood fence planks as a full frame, you end up with a pretty cute place to hang your notes and office gear! Thank goodness for rusty S hooks I say.
So, here’s how I put this little fella together if you are so inclined to desire one too! Or perhaps a variation of one.

What I used:
OFFICE stencil in small
Jigsaw or mitersaw
Cordless drill and screws
2 – Once the bulletin board was mounted to the wall with screws, random reclaimed wood fence boards were positioned and screwed into place.
As you can see, I used a couple boards with pointed tips only because those boards were sitting around like that. Why not, right?! It adds a special quirkiness you wouldn’t expect.
3 – Next, three screws were added to the boards in a zig zag shape.
4 – Heavy twine or thin rope was knotted at one end, then threaded along the next two screws, ending in a knot once again.
Once the twine was in place, the leftover was snipped off.
5 – A fence plank was stenciled with OFFICE in Fusion’s Coal Black.

6 – The OFFICE sign was then installed on the right side, hiding where the twine was screwed on. Cool, right?
Don’t even ask me how I came up with this…
Isn’t it delightful when you have no idea why you did what you did but you like it anyway?
Welcome to my spontaneous world.
So anyway, because I ‘totally planned’
yeah I don’t think so this fabulous gap along the bottom board it provided the perfect spot to hang all kinds of rusty S hooks to hang up office gear!
And to add a dash of work authenticity, added a cute OPEN sign I first showed you HERE
What a cutie pie office space!
And one of the coolest things about setups like these? They are easy to dismount if you want the boards for other things once again.
As you can see from the office setups below… same supplies, arranged differently!
Aren’t free decorating components just grand?
Well, this ended up being one sweet little easy to make office setup with the office flip desk. So glad the desk came back for this one!
All that’s missing is my phone for a little endless scrolling and a good cup of coffee… my kinda work!
I hope you enjoyed all these rustic fun office setups, and that they have inspired a little something new to your own work stations at home!
