In addition to the shelving in my office, I was in much need of some memo board space. I am a piler - anything that I need to keep near me (passwords, phone numbers, etc) that I use on a regular basis always ends up in a pile - UNLESS I have a handy dandy bulletin board! So, this past weekend I spent some time making some cute memo space.
The first thing I did was to update a free bulletin board that I got when our renters moved out and left it in the garage - score!! I love free stuff! This is what I started with:
I taped around all of the edges so I could paint it white. After the painting was done, it looked like this:
Then I just measured and cut some burlap - you know I needed some burlap in my office! I spray mounted that to the cork and then applied basic silver thumb tacks all around the edges so they had that nail head look.
Here's the final product! I had a few leftover thumbtacks so I hot glued some buttons on to make some cute decorative pushpins. Now I just have to get some stuff up there - don't worry - It will be covered in memos soon enough!!
