I am NOT a crafty person. Really, I’m not. I look at some of the things that people post on Pinterest, and I kind of just roll my eyes. It all just seems a bit out of my grasp!
But, things are a bit tight in the finances department around here. And I would like to do a few projects around the house, so I actually tackled one here, and incorporated my limited DIY skills. The happy result is that it turned out; YAY!
I decided I wanted a nice bulletin board above the desk in my home office, but I didn’t want one of those boring corkboard ones with the metal trim. So I decided to pick up a few things at the store, and I made my own girly-girl version.
- a basic bulletin board, purchased at a big box retailer for about $7
- shelf liner paper (one roll)
- a roll of colored duck tape
You will also need a stapler, scissors and an X-Acto Knife.
Cut the shelf paper to fit the cork part of the bulletin board. Even though the paper has an adhesive backing, I stapled it to the bulletin board using a normal desk stapler. I took the duck tape and covered the metal frame. It’s so cool how many types of duck tape you can get these days; they have so many colors and cool patterns.
That’s all there is to it. My little art project was really simple, and best of all, it was totally CHEAP. A nice cheerful addition to my home office. It was so nice, I made a second one for my kids.
