DIY a Custom Bulletin Board

Why settle for a regular cork bulletin board when it’;s so straightforward to make a custom board with your selection of material in any dimension, completely match for in which you want it?

I decided our mudroom was a excellent location for ours to hang. It truly is exactly where we drop our keys, charge our phones and hang coats when we enter via the garage door. Because you can see this area from the kitchen I wanted some thing that looked fresh and colorful.

I located the fabric 50% off at Joanne’;s and had my neighborhood lumber yard reduce and miter the molding specifically the dimension I essential to fit on the side of a cabinet. They also cut some homasote board which is under the material. Ever considering that I saw a story in an old Martha Stewart magazine, I’ve been wanting to make a homasote bulletin board–it’s a variety of constructing materials produced of recycled paper and it can make amazing bulletin boards, both plain, or covered.

My regional lumberyard provides a store service…I simply draw what I want and give it to the man in the store. He does the cutting, I place it together and paint.

The material was cut about one inch more substantial than the homasote board.

It really is easy to staple because the board is soft.


The frame is not a necessity but I like the way it finishes the total thing.

Up coming up: finish painting the whole room which I will share following week!
