Burlap Bulletin Board

I've been seeing these burlap bulletin boards all over blogdom recently, and wanted to give one a try. It's currently hanging at the bottom of our stairs, but I'm thinking it'd look better in the office. This project is so easy. If you can staple, then you're set. Here's what you need:
  • Bulletin board
  • 1-2 yards of burlap (I used two, since the burlap's weave was so loose you could see through only one layer)
  • Stapler
Lay the board face down in the center of the fabric. Fold each edge over, pull taught, and staple. And keep stapling. I actually used a regular staples, not a gun, since the back of my board was cork. That's it! So easy.

I love Pottery Barn's use of a bulletin board as an Advent calendar (there's uses linen):


Happy decorating!
