Bulletin Board Redo

A few weeks ago after we all did the "Where I Blog" posts, I decided my bulletin board area could use more pizazz! I went to Joanne's Fabrics and found a patterned fabric, which coordinates with my bedding and curtains, to reupholster my bulletin board.  Here's the before of my desk area:


In order to reupholster the bulletin board, I took everything down and measured the dimension of the space.  Then I added an inch on either side so I could fold the ends of the fabrics, in order to hide the fringed ends.  Secret: I simply used tape to secure the folded edges.  No time to sew around here!  Next, I put the fabric up on the cork with push pins to make sure it was all even.


After the push pins were in and I was happy with the alignment, I used a staple gun to permanently secure the fabric.  I stapled right before the push pins, removing each push pin as I stapled.


Done!


I chose this fabric because my bedding is flowered and swirled, so this organic print compliments that perfectly.  I went with the lime green, because only one wall in my bedroom is the green, while three are the blue.  So this brings the green to another side of the room.



I think it adds lots of color!  Makes me want to sit there all day!  But no time for that, because today I'm packin' up.....and getting a facial.  I consider it a back to school necessity (:

Love and Green Swirled Bulletin Boards,
