Did you see my little workspace  yesterday? One element that adds colors and charm to the space is the color blocked bulletin board. That is what we are talking about today.

This is an easy peasy project, that is if you like craft paint and paint messes. I bought these Cork trivets ages ago. I bought my first set when we visited Ikea a long time ago and shoved it somewhere and forgot about it. I bought it again on a later visit thinking its a good thing and again kept it some where and forgot about it. Until these came out while cleaning up years worth of junk.

But this time I didn't shove them any where because I have been thinking of a message/bulletin board for sometime. Thus this project was born.

Supplies :

Craft Paint
Paint Brush
Ruler & Pencil

Here is what I did.

The first thing is to decide on a  design and colors to use. I tried many then settled for colors that would go with the other pieces in the room. Then I drew a rough sketch of to get a look and feel of the board I am making.

Then I started painting, which is kind of easiest part.

So what do you think? Wouldn't this be cool in an office or teen's room?
