I have seen gorgeous burlap bulletin boards all over blog land. It has been on my to do list for a long time. I found this frame at a thrift store a couple of months back and picked it up.
I removed the backing and the lovely rooster pic. Gave the frame a dry brushing with white paint (forgot to take a pic). I did not have cork board so I decided to use batting. I have one I purchased years ago that is batting.
I I pulled the batting tight over the cardboard and hot glued it on.
I laid down some burlap and repeated the process.
Front side with burlap~I really should iron it but have I mentioned I hate ironing.
It looked very plain when I put it in the frame so I decided to add some loveliness. I used a fleur de lis stencil~I do not own a Cricut or Silhouette machine. I then traced it using a paint pen.
Not bad for the old fashioned way.
BTW~Got this stencil for super cheap at Joann's today~only 97 cents. I love clearance.
Filled it in with the paint pen. Love it.
This is my little desk section in the kitchen. I have wanted to add something to this area since we finished the kitchen.
