Useful. Handy. Pretty.

I have a confession to make....

I own a bulletin board, See...
Its ugly,

Its useful,

Its handy,

But it ain't Pretty.

Until Now . . .
Now she's a looker! She matches my kitchen/office area perfectly. I painted the frame with craft paint and added fabric to the front. I am amazed how easy this project was. After months of procrastination I'm glad I finally forced myself to get it done. Silly me.

Once school is back in full swing the board will fill up fast with the girls stuff so I painted a couple magnetic memo strips I picked up from Ikea a while back, and hung them above the bulletin board for my stuff.

Pretty. Useful. Wouldn't you say?


  1. I love it! What a great idea!!!

  2. Looks great! I did mine in black and white toile, so handy for all the kids paperwork. They are back to school already? Mine do not go back for a month, should I be jealous?

  3. Very neat! It doesn't look like a useful item, but more of an accessory. Good job!


  4. I love it Robin! Great job. Love the reds you're pulling into the room. Still pushing for the red cabinets :)

    Your new header is really nice too. Now I'm inspired to make a change at Vermont Cottage.

  5. Very nice. I like the fabric, a lot.


I love hearing from you. Thanks for stopping by!
