I have a huge bulliten board in my room that used to be covered with pictures.  I want to do something different with it.  Any different ideas?  Huh

With mine I spray-painted it silver- it looks really cool.  I'm going to make fun push-pins to go along with it.  Some other ideas I considered were tacking a piece of fabric to the cork part as a backdrop update and hot-gluing a border around the board: boa, rick-rack trim, ribbon, pom-poms, anything!

I hope my ideas helped!
good luck to ya!

I revamped an old corkboard bulliten board by first taking off the frame, then I wraped it in fabric and stapleguned the fabric to the back side.  Then I got some scrap ribbons and hot glued them every which way weaving them in and out from eachother ensuring tension.  I put fun push pins where the ribbons crossed. 
It was really fun and funky, I mostly kept different postcards in it.  It served me well and i'd take a picture for you but it got destroyed when I moved unfortunately.

I also did one as a present to a seamstress and I did the same technique of wrapping in fabric then re-applying the frame but I did a very neat and orderly criss-crossing of ribbons and I hot glued buttons where they crossed.  I also hot glued buttons to the border of the frame. 

The project costs between 5-10$ and it definately makes an original conversation peice.
