Office Update and Bulletin Board Makeover

Hubby and I painted the office.  Nothing exciting since we plan to sell the house shortly after I graduate school.  This room used to have nicks and scuffs all over the yellowish walls.  The furniture was haphazardly squeezed into the room wherever there was space for it at the time.  When we cleared out the furniture, we moved the treadmill into our bedroom and when I moved the furniture back in, I added a couple of club chairs and the girls' easel.  I didn't snap a before shot, but here's the after.

Love the new "reading nook".  Ignore the boxes under the chairs.  They'll be gone when I clean out the closet.

Notice the new bulletin board.  It used to be a plain cork bulletin board with a white frame.
I covered the cork with paper and painter's tape and spray painted the frame.  Then I cut a piece of super cool fabric the size of the cork and sprayed the back of it with adhesive spray.  Then I just layed it on the cork, smoothed it out and here's the close-up!

I love it so much that I almost don't want to put anything on it.


  1. Super cute bullitain board!! I thought it was a piece of art work! :) I wouldn't want to cover it either!

  2. Wow, it looks so amazing!
    I know what you mean about the Asics. I've only strayed once in 7 years and that was a huge mistake. The Asics are the best :-)
