My sisters and I have used it in our rooms in the past, but it was looking pretty raggedy. So I gave it a paint job face lift from this:
Now for the rest of the Bulletin Board Makeover...
I was all about finding a fabric or some contact paper that I (or my parental unit) had already purchased. In fact, this project cost me ZERO dollars, because the primer, paint and contact paper I used were all just sitting around from old projects. This contact paper was from... redoing my grandma's house I think??
Works for me!!
Sadly I cannot measure worth beans, but I had plenty of contact paper to fix my mistakes.
BEST TOOL EVER! My pampered chef scraper/squeegy/picker-upper-thingy. (I also keep one in my car for squeegy-ing my windows!) It worked great for scraping the paper perfectly flat, no bubbles here!
Now I have this fabulous, VASTLY improved Bulletin Board area.
I used it for staging much of my wedding stuff, (all those boxes, and TONS of stuff pined to the board eventually). Now I am thinking about putting it back behind my desk to create a better work station.
