      Framed Bulletin Board Poor Okay Good Great Awesome Rate (22) Comments(20) Save Print View Gallery We Also Love Desk Organizing Ideas Desk Organizing Ideas � � 1 of 2 Find More Back-to-school ideas Bulletin boards and message centers ideas Crafting ideas Decorating ideas Frames ideas Martha Stewart Living, June 1998 A hardworking bulletin board is, quite literally, pretty as a picture when covered with cheerful fabric, then placed in a frame and hung from a wide ribbon. The frame is painted to complement the fabric, which makes a perfect background for favorite photographs and letters, along with the more prosaic matters of life such as the phone bill and the grocery list. Have a lumber yard cut 3/4-inch-thick Homasote fiberboard to fit a large frame, new or from a tag sale. Cut a piece of fabric 2 inches larger all around; place facedown on work surface. Center fiberboard over fabric. Wrap one side of fabric to the back. Using a staple gun, attach fabric to board, beginning with one staple in the middle of the side, 1 1/2 inches in from the edge. Wrap fabric over opposite side, and secure to board with a staple directly opposite the first. Repeat with other two sides. Continue stapling fabric, working out toward the corners, always adding staples in pairs on opposite sides of the board, ensuring fabric stretches evenly. Place board in frame; secure in place with angle brackets at each corner. Attach D-rings to back of top corners of the frame. Loop ribbon through D-rings, and hang.
