Girl’s Room: Fabric Covered Bulletin Board

Hello friends!

I have been wanting to share some of the changes in my daughter’s bedroom, but it seems like as soon as I get it looking semi-blogworthy, she manages to sneak in her mass of treasures.  I swear, this girl has hoarding tendencies.

Fortunately, I managed to clear out a slice to share.

My daughter is a creative soul, so until I finish up the cute desk I found while thrifting, I’m making this corner desk work.  I added the fun floral artwork and chair from IKEA for a fun pop of pink against the green walls.

These little wall mounted buckets are a must-have for any kid’s room.  Perfect for pens, pencils and markers.  But at the rate she hoards collects them, I may need to add some more.

The latest addition to this space is the bulletin board.  I picked it up at a garage sale for $7, sprayed the frame and gave it a facelift with fabric (that I had on hand, no less!).  The colors are perfect for her room.

It started out as an ugly brown frame, but some spray paint solved that problem really quick.  Plus, the cork wasn’t in the best of shape, so covering it with fabric not only covered that unsightly detail, but also gave an added punch to the room.

I found a great tutorial at The Homes I Have Made.  How cute is this?

The great part was that I didn’t have to dismantle the entire bulletin board to put this together.  We’re talking spray adhesive, fabric and a putty knife to push the fabric underneath the frame.  Brilliant!

I’m sure she will fill this bad boy up in no time flat, but at least everything will be corralled in one place, right?  Unfortunately, I didn’t get this hung in time to keep her from using her wall as a chalkboard (thus the wash marks on the wall courtesy of the Magic Eraser – lovely).  So yes, a chalkboard is in store for this space as well.

Maybe at some point I will get it pulled together to the point that I can share all of the changes.  Baby steps, people.  Or is it 12 steps?  A combination of both, perhaps. 😉

    I have the same ikea bar and buckets for my craft room. I need to make some sort of bulletin board for my 9 year olds room-she's just starting to want to hang pictures from magazines on the walls. I love the way your daughters turned out

    Do you know if the buckets and hanging bar are still available? Or did you get them some time ago?
