Burlap Bulletin Board

I decided to do a quick little project today, took me less than and hour.  I saw this photo a while ago, can't remember where.
I loved the look of the burlap bulletin board, so I decided to make a smaller version of my own.

I had an old picture frame from the thrift store that I had already spray painted white.
The picture in the frame was made out of a hard white board, so I used that as the "bulletin" piece.  You can probably find this board at any craft or home improvement store.

I cut out and hot glued a piece of burlap around the board.  Pulling it taught as I went.
Then put the board into the frame and stapled around the edges, through the board and into the wood on the back of the frame.
Very easy!

Once the baby comes, we are moving the office downstairs.  This new bulletin board will be a perfect addition when it's all set up.
