Easy Bulletin Board Project and a GIVEAWAY.

This past summer, I helped my boss (Mandy) do a little re-decorating in her office.

I had some projects for an office that I had been wanting to try, inspired by Ballard Designs.

I love these magnet boards…

So I made some for my boss’ office.

IMG_2698

They turned out great, and she has loved using them.

IMG_2695

So then I wanted to make her a bulletin board to hang above her desk.

I love the ones in the Ballard Designs magazines…

Their 28” x 24” is $89.00. And the next size is 40” x 60” and is $299.00, plus an extra $30.00 shipping cost!

My bulletin board measures 32” x 27”.

I got the frame at Goodwill for $5.50. I was hoping for something with more design to it, but after many stops to GW, I decided this frame would work good enough.

IMG_3063

There was no glass in it, which was fine because I didn’t need it.

IMG_3064 I used a liquid deglosser on the frame and spray painted it black.

IMG_3065

My dad got me one of these “can guns”, and I love it. It makes spray painting so much easier, and it doesn’t hurt my finger.

Thanks, Dad!

IMG_3068 I gave it a couple of good coats of paint,IMG_3781

I bought a roll of cork board at Lowe’s for $8.00.

IMG_3783

Then I hot glued the cork to the cardboard backing of the picture frame.

IMG_3786

FYI: I wouldn’t use the glue gun if I did this project again. I would use a spray adhesive instead.

IMG_2886 (This can has had it!)

The glue from the glue gun was a little bumpy and it did not give me the results I had hoped for. But once you hang things on the bulletin board, I don’t think you will notice the little imperfections.

IMG_3787

I sanded down the edges to get the look I was after.

IMG_3788

And now it is ready to use!

I bought some little “Spare Parts” from Hobby Lobby and hot glued them to some little tacs.

IMG_3806

I also got this whole bunch of keys from Hobby Lobby for $6.00 (the 50% off price). I only needed one of them, so I am looking forward to using the other ones in future projects!

IMG_3812

IMG_3813

What do ya think? I made the bulletin board for about $10.00 (I had cork board left over).

IMG_3815

Much better and a little bigger than the $89.00 board from Ballard’s!

I used one key which cost about a dollar and the tacks cost me about $2.50.

IMG_3814

Pretty good for less than $15.00!

IMG_3816

Now for the GIVEAWAY.

I made a burlap magnet board for YOU!

IMG_3810

(I took this picture when the sun was almost all the way down tonight. I may try to post a better picture tomorrow.)

I hot glued the rest of my “Spare Parts” to make some cute little fancy magnets.

IMG_3804

Now, I know that I can’t make them as professionally as Ballard Designs does, but it looks pretty cute to me!

  6. I love your blog - I lost my mom about 7 years ago. She too was an inspiration and a Godly woman - such an example. Reading you blog has made me think of that time again and how grateful I am that I had her for so many years!

    I am a follower and I'd love to win your give away! I work in cubicle land and will be posting soon about how I "wallpapered" my cube and some of the things I try to do to make it welcoming and "me". I could certainly use the board in my cube!!

    I will link up from my post tomorrow when I'm fresh and can figure it out (or will have my daughter do it for me!)
    Thanks! Esther

  133. I would so love this magnet board.
    (and I am definitely going to make a few.)

    Also, your posts about your Mom speak to me. I lost my Mom suddenly 6 years ago this week and she was the best grandparent ever. The pain is not quite as raw now, but not a day goes by that I don't think of her and miss her.

  140. I came across your blog and posted a comment last week as I was preparing the eulogy for my Dad's funeral. Your writings were comforting. I saw the post yesterday about the bulletin boards and bought the spray adhesive on my lunch hour yesterday. Don't know if I can make one, but I'm going to try.
