This easy DIY project is something you can do in just an hour to keep your classroom, home office or dorm room organized and in-style this year.
For years, we’ve had a plain old bulletin board sitting around collecting dust. It’s a remnant from my husband's college years, I think. We keep moving it from one closet to another with the hope that “some day” we may use it again. Well today is finally the day! Several weeks ago, AlwaysMod contacted the Think and Make Thursday link party host team and asked if we’d be interested in working with them on a Marimekko Fabric Challenge. They have such gorgeous modern fabrics that myself and several of others from the team jumped at the chance to work with them.
Over the past few years, I’ve been collecting odds and ends to create a collage or gallery wall in our arts/crafts room including art, tool caddies and other organizational resources. So far, I have a small canvas that says “Be the most brilliant color in the box,” a stainless magnetic marker board, a large bright red clock and that bulletin board my husband had leftover from college.
The old bulletin board looked pretty plain with all the other stuff I have for the gallery wall so I spruced it up with modern fabric, ribbon and upholstery tacks to give it a fresh new look!
A DIY Bulletin Board makeover with fabric is incredibly easy once you’ve chosen the materials you want to use. It’s the type of project that can be completed in less than an hour and doesn’t require any sewing or special skills.
