Bulletin Board 5 wyas

I don’t know about you, but my summer is flying by at break-neck speed!  The kids will be starting school soon, and you know what that means….we’ll be inundated with papers!  When Sarah from Sarah M. Dorsey Designs shared her Oversized Striped Cork Board this week, it was a good reminder to me of how handy it can be to have one place to hang up the most important of those papers during the school year.  Not to mention having a place to display art projects, pictures, memos, and more.

I went through my files and found a few more favorite bulletin board projects to share with you today.  All of these can be made fairly easily with just a few simple, easy-to-find supplies.  Check out these 5 Ways to Make a Bulletin Board.


1. From Cabinet Doors


 I crafted a magnetic cork board from the doors off of a vintage cabinet.  I had so much fun selecting fabrics for this project, and I still really love that chicken wire–perfect for clipping notes and invitations!

2.  Like Restoration Hardware’s

Driven by Décor loved the bulletin board trio that Restoration Hardware sells, but knew it wouldn’t work for her space.  Instead, she crafted her own version, which I featured at Knock Off Decor.

3. From a Serving Tray


One of my contributors, Carmel from Our Fifth House, came up with this nifty upcycling project.  She took a cork-lined serving tray from the thrift shop and turned it into a memo board.

4. From Ikea Placemats


 Another great bulletin board from Sarah M. Dorsey designs!  This framed cork board is made using cork placemats from Ikea.  Just looking at the grids dividing this board makes me feel organized!

 5. Like Pottery Barn’s Command Center


 This command center/bulletin board used to hang in my son’s bedroom.  It was so fun to make!

What do you do to corral the paper chaos in your home during the school year?  Do you have a system that works for you?
