Re-covered Bulletin Board

July 20, 2011


Things don't stay the same in our house for long. 
After re-painting my son's room, I realized I didn't like his burlap bulletin board anymore. 


The burlap trend is alive and kicking but I can't say I have taken to it. Burlap is a crotchety sort, tickling my nose, making me sneeze.

 So bye-bye burlap. 

Hello black and white stripes.






 If you have been following along you will notice my obsession with black and white stripes. I have recovered this, that, and made this with the same fabric. 

Yes, I love stripes.

Come back to see how I made this, just in case you are dying to know how.

  2. You are really working the B/W stripe trend lately, and I love it! Looks so awesome with the black nailhead trim too.

  4. love the way you've positioned that, so the tacks on the top and bottom almost form scallops. The stripes are much more hip for a boy's room! I can't get into the burlap upholstery, it's so scratchy!

  8. Love how this turned out Barbara! So gorgeous!!! Love the wall colour too? What's the name of that beauty? Cheers, amy*

  9. @Amy. The wall colour is Stonington Grey by BM. The photos don't do the wall colour justice as the lighting in his room faces north. With all the dark and cloudy skies we keep having, makes it hard to take decent photos!

  10. I liked the burlap until you showed the striped version. Now I LOVE the striped one! Gosh you are so motivated, tackling project after project!

  11. I love the new look. It is definitely a bolder look, and looks fantastic. I am working on a similar project, so can't wait to see the how-to.

  15. Can't go wrong with stripes... especially black and white stripes. Lovely! Or perhaps I should say "rockin" if it's for your son's room.

  17. The stripes are much better. I'm not into Burlap either. A great effect now!

  18. Great decision to change out the burlap Barb (not a huge fan of the itchy stuff either) and an even better decision to use the stripes as the new cover! Looks terrific :-)

  24. Your stripes are awesome! I had bought burlap to cover 2 bulletin boards, but we moved before I could get to it... that's the burlap we're now using to cover a few throw pillows for my daughter's room instead. And I hear you on the nature of burlap! But she's adamant that she wants to use it, so here goes :-)

  25. I love it! I've been wanting to re-do my boring boards so this is inspiring to get DIY-ing this weekend. I have tons of fabric scraps I can use. And the nailheads are a great touch. ; )
