Linen Message Board with Nailhead Trim

Nailhead Trim Cork Board Bulletin Board

When Emily from On the V Side decided to turn her office into a usable craft space, she says there was no question the walls needed a little “pick-me-up.” Emily started with the “simplest of organizational tools” and created a corkboard for the wall. The fun part was that Emily challenged herself to make it for absolutely no cost, using only items she had on hand. Sounds like a girl after my own heart!

Tufted Fabric Headboard with Winged Sides

Chris and Julie from DO or DIY desperately needed some pizzazz in their guest bedroom and knew the perfect solution would be a headboard that made a BIG statement. However, despite all the tutorials for DIY headboards, Chris and Julie but didn’t find anything that quite fit the mark. The couple decided to come up with their own design that combined fabric, tufts, winged sides, and nailhead trim. Julie says, “It makes just the statement we wanted in the room, accomplishing that luxurious hotel look we were going for… although I didn’t consider how it would encourage guests to never leave! The best part of this project was that it was a weekend’s worth of work that only cost us $100, compared to retail versions that ranged from $800-1500!”

Burlap Message Board

When her husband needed a message board for his home office, Emily from life{illustrated} searched the internet to find one that wasn’t too “pretty.” A burlap covered message board with nail head trim was perfect for the space and crazy easy to make using a thrifted $2 bulletin board. I love what Emily has to say here about not spending more than is “absolutely necessary” on material items. It is hard to fathom spending tons of money on a memo board when you can get something similar for a few dollars and a little creativity!

Amy from Amy’s Casablanca created this gorgeous upholstered headboard with nailhead trim for her guest bedroom in just an hours time and for under $100. While I love the neutral fabric Amy chose, you could really make a statement in a room with a colored fabric and that eye-catching Greek-key nailhead pattern.

Burlap Memo Board

Lisa from Diary of {Wannabe} Domestic Diva found a burlap memo board from Ballard that was perfect for displaying project ideas in her new craft space. Not surprisingly, the price was the only thing that wasn’t perfect about it, but Lisa found a way to get that sought after Ballard look with items she already had. Looks just like the inspiration to me!

Burlap Message Board

If you have kids in school, you know the overwhelming amount of paper that makes its way home. Crafty Sisters Candace and Nicole created a really awesome burlap message board to combat the paper clutter. The crisp burlap, perfect corners, and straight nailhead trim make the message board look like it came straight from Ballard’s catalog! The sisters’ board is even better though because it’s customized to fit the space and has an open frame in the back that allows for plug access.

She replicated it with a secondhand sofa and some burlap and thumb tacks. The transformation totaled in at $8.50 thanks to Amanda’s cost-effective substitution of inexpensive thumb tacks for pricey nailheads. Amanda also [...Read More]
