Bulletin Boards are a great way to help you stay organized.
I use reclaimed frames to create bulletin boards that are decorative and functional.
As one of my biggest sellers, I’m always looking for frames for The Decorated Nest Shop
The more ornate the frame, the better!
Take a look!
A reclaimed frame, some paint, the fabric of your choice is all it takes.
As you can see the end result is beautiful!
The second frame was gold and, again, two coats of paint (I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint
followed by two coats of wax) and distressing gave the frame an aged look. Have I mentioned I use a
nail file to do my distressing? Works as well as sandpaper, and I always have one on hand!
Simple burlap finished this bulletin board off.
I love the style of these frames and the contrast of the casual burlap with the ornate carving .
You can use almost any fabric for bulletin boards, its just a matter of your particular taste and style.
Practical and pretty!
These Bulletin Boards are available in the shop at
