If you’ve been reading here for a while you know when I first did fabric covered magnetic bulletin boards, I fell in love and have not stopped making them since! I even made several for Teacher appreciation gifts. I decided I needed some for my office to help me with organization. believe me I need all the help I can get in this area. I picked up 2 old kitchen cabinet doors from the Habitat for Humanity Restore. You can find a ton of these and they make perfect and cheap frames. The two I got are 30″ x 16.5″ at $5.99 each.
I wanted the frames to be cream to match my painted desk and my bookshelf. I took some cream glossy spray paint and sprayed the frames. I left the inside of the cabinets in the frame but did not paint them. I picked up some great fabric at Joann’s that was 50% off and an additional sheet of metal since I had already gone through the last piece. They are 4′ x 3′ and are $17.24 at my local Home Depot. I used a competitor coupon to buy this and it brought the cost down to $13.76. I have plenty left over for more projects! I might just start attaching whole pieces to the walls and wallpaper over them. Then my whole room can be a magnetic bulletin board. Would that be taking it TOO FAR? Think how great it would be when my kids start wanting to hang Teen Beat celebrity pictures on their walls. Do they even make that magazine anymore? 🙂 Ok so anyway, I then adhered the fabric to the cut pieces of metal and then adhered it inside the frame. The great thing is they look like pieces of art when there is nothing on them.
When I fill it with my to do lists, pictures and important papers, it becomes a great office organizer.
I would love it if you would Pin this post!
