Where to start?
I have been trying to think of a plan for the area above my desk for a while now. I wasn’t feeling my dry erase/bulletin board combo from the good ole dorm room anymore. Maybe it was the permanent dry erase marker stains? Or the bright blue yarn we used to hang this up sophomore year? I’m not sure what lead to its ultimate demise, but I was ready to move on.
A few weeks after I had the initial thought to change things up and once I figured out how EASY it is to make bulletin boards , I found these two wonderful frames at work. In the trash. For free. Of course they came home with me. Of course they lived in my car for a week before ever making it onto my room. Eventually* I decided to turn one of them into a bulletin board for the area above my desk.
*Eventually = 3 weeks
I decided that I deserved a break from my unit plan and teacher work sample and think pieces and other assignments I no longer have to think about (insert happy dance) to make this bulletin board.
I got out my wood filler, pliers, and trusty ORB spray paint and got to work!
As I was cleaning up my
Once I got over this traumatic experience (21 years without stitches – I only whimpered little bit) I covered foam display board in black fabric. I then taped a diamond lattice design and painted it with green craft paint. I didn’t like the final product though, so I dug through my fabric box and created this instead. It’s all finished now and I couldn’t be happier.
