As I was cleaning the craft room or shall I say unburying it, I saw my plain bulletin board staring at me just crying for a makeover!  Immediately, I envisioned it’s new look with bright polka dots bouncing off a black background…

Let’s get started…

Bulletin Board Makeover

Apply one coat of spray primer to bulletin board.  Once that is dry, about 10-15 minutes, spray the outer trim with silver spray paint.

When the silver paint dries, paint bulletin board with black craft paint.  While black paint is drying, choose an assortment of bright craft paints and find a container or plate to trace for polka dots.

Trace plate or container randomly across bulletin board once black paint is dry.



Apply one color of paint to one of the circles.  While paint is wet, add a few drops of lighter or darker paint to circle and blend in on one side of the circle to add some interest 🙂

With the yellow circles, I painted one coat and let it dry.  Then I added another coat of yellow and added a few drops of white paint to blend.

I caught Lily having a little fun with an old mustache costume piece and some coke bottle caps!

I am so glad that I saved these coke bottle caps.  I love the simple, classic design 🙂

This is pretty darn simple, just make sure you are using upholstery tacks that are longer so that they stick out far enough from the cap to be useful.  Yes I speak from experience…I tried regular tacks first!

Just squeezed a little hot glue in each bottle cap, add upholstery tack to the hot glue, and let glue cool and dry.

I wonder how long we will even see this bulletin board.  I mean, we tended to pile layers upon layers of project ideas on our boards.  I filed everything that was on it before this makeover with a few exceptions that I still cannot file away…
