Did you happen to see all of the burlap covered canvases out there in the art/craft supply stores? I did and immediately thought one would make a fabulous bulletin board. Then I saw the price tag and I just couldn’t justify it. Naturally, I decided I would make my own, complete with an awesome, DIY nailhead trim.
I took a canvas that I had in the basement and up cycled it with some scrap burlap. I used two layers…both to make sure I didn’t see the print underneath and to give it some added thickness for the pins to go through. I used a staple gun to keep it all together, pulling and stretching the fabric around as I stapled to keep it tight.
I used thumbtacks around the edge for the nailhead trim look.
All done, looking great in the pantry, and practically nothing spent. I think that makes it even more awesome-er.
And how about that artwork? I had an eager little artist ready to hang something on our new board.
Have a great day!
