Closet Score


I must have a thing for bulletin board boards in my house.  I keep finding more of them every time I go on one of my cleaning fits...I mean don't you all find random things when you start cleaning and organizing like a crazy person? 

Anyway that's besides the point, the point is I found another one last night and I think its the next victim due for a makeover in my house.  Its an old frame found in the basement of my Grandparents house that ended up in my closet and it needs an upgrade now.  Of course I had to go online for some inspiration and found some great ideas.


 

 
  
 
 I did the board above for my kitchen with another closet score with just burlap and some left over nailheads from my chair project.

I think my favorite might be this framed ribbon board.  I love how all the ribbon is all over the board creating a piece of art in itself.  

How do you like your cork / ribbon / tack / bulletin / message board to look?

I'm in love with that first office shot! That wallpaper/chair combo is wow! I also dig that last board with the ribbon. I love the idea of a really ornate/fancy frame with pics and tix and cards tucked in.

In my art studio, I want a wall of inspiration to switch out seasonally. I think a wall of cork or magnetic would suit me fine.

I love the idea of framing the board.. makes it chic. Mine is just covered in pics, tickets, rip outs from mags, etc. Inspiration and memories!

I love the burlap message board you did, I first saw it on Mrs. Limestone's blog and it inspired the one I did for my daughter's bedroom. I do believe this is how I found your blog!! Glad I did...Janell

Love the frame/ribbon combo. I also used nailhead to trim a message board:

I love the first and last image.

Love this. Awhile back I made a magnetic chalkboard and framed it in a decorative white frame. But, in the long run it didn't end up working out. Thanks for the idea's maybe I'll try making one of these.

Love the first one and the board you did. I've been looking for an ornate frame to make a burlap board with. Great inspiration.

Beatriz said...

The ones with the more ornate frames jump out at me the most. They somehow manage to look less "messy" and more "inspired".

I remember loving the one that you made, but I adore all these images for their personal feel. I love the idea of ribbons too!

Haven and Home said...

I am with you, love the ribbons.

carlee said...

I could never pick just one...maybe that's why I'm always changing mine. I have a nailhead one, but I'm lookin to make another...I think the different colored ribbons is so much fun.

I would be very happy working in a version of the first image! Love your burlap board!!!

Blueprint Bliss said...

The ribbon one is fun.

I had a cork board (covered in canvas w/ nailhead like yours) in my kitchen. But just replaced it with a cute wire board that my mom bought me...

Taylor said...

Love the ribbon board! I just made a bulletin board for my office at home using fabric and a frame and I like it but I want to go the fabric/ nailhead route for the next one I make. It will go in my office at work. So many options!
