Who knew that bulletin boards could be bright spots? To make a custom one, you'll need a Homasote board cut to fit a painted wooden frame.


  • Wooden frame

  • Homasote board, cut to fit

  • Fabric, at least 2 inches larger than board on all sides

  • Staple gun

  • Angle brackets


  1. Cut fabric 2 inches larger than board on all sides. Center board facedown on fabric. Fold edge of one side of fabric over board; starting at middle, secure with staple gun. Repeat on opposite edge, then remaining sides.

  2. Place board in frame; secure with angle brackets at corners.
