I cut a big old bulletin board to fit and covered that with burlap, then Craig attached it to the frame (okay, well he did the cutting too). Now I have a big awesome bulletin board for school schedules and lunch menus, etc.
The kids’ school went to a system this year of labeling the days A-E instead of Mon-Fri. That way if there’s a day off, they just pick up where they left off instead of skipping Art or whatever. The problem is, each child has a different class on each day, and we never know what day it is. So I printed out A-E and will keep moving the purple push-pin over, and hopefully that will keep us on track.
This is part of my information hallway just inside the garage door. One of my first blog projects was the magnetic chalkboard that hangs on the other side. It’s also made out of a old frame ; see this post for info on that project.
I’m linking this up with CSI Project’s Ballard Designs Challenge.
My corkboard is a pretty good replica of Ballard’s Madison Corkboard, at $199 plus shipping, plus $15 oversized fee for the one closest in size to mine.
