I’ve been wanting to bring some fabric into our desk area. At first I thought of doing a fabric bulletin board (like HERE) but it wasn’t quite what I wanted. And with those big boards, papers hang down and cover a lot of the board, so why not have open spaces for the papers to cover. I came up with this idea – bulletin board strips. They were pretty simple and I just hung them up – and love them! Here’s a quick how-to:
First I had some scrap boards (leftover from the desk my hubby MADE – he’s awesome!) so that’s the size I chose. It’s totally up to you on dimensions. You’ll also need fabric, corkboard, a staple gun, and picture hangers. First lay your board down on the cork to trace and then cut out a piece to cover the front of the board. Do the same for the fabric, but be sure to cut it bigger than the board because it needs to wrap the edges.
