Super Easy Bulletin Board

Look at this treasure I found at Goodwill on Saturday for $9.99.

So I decided to make a bulletin board for my kitchen/great room. The following is a list of items needed for this project:

1. Beautiful ornate frame :)

2. Corkboard

3. Spray paint (I used ivory satin from Walmart)

4. Burnt Umber craft paint

5. Hot glue gun

6. Nails and hammer

7. Tacs for bulletin board

I started off with a few coats of spray paint on my frame. After those dried completely I watered down the craft paint a lot and brushed it on. I immediately wiped it off with a paper towel. This brought out all the detail and imperfections.

Then, my hubby cut down the cork board to size and I hot glued into the frame and then added nails as well to strengthen it. That is seriously it! Hang it on the wall and enjoy! Here are some pictures

What a good idea! I wanted to do half chalk board half bulletin board, but I couldn't find any slate. After I was done, I realized I could have done the spray stuff. It'll be interesting to see how if works!
