New Bulletin Board

I am loving my new bulletin board I made to replace the current one in our office. I bought the board for $2 at one consignment shop and the linen fabric (a remnant) for only $1 at another consignment shop. I already owned the silver nail heads (Jo Ann Fabrics). I needed 5 boxes and only had 3 so I had to take an extra trip last week to pick up another two boxes (or this would have been finished a week ago). What I love most about my new board are the push pins. I saw these at Anthropologie and was inspired. I was tempted to buy them, but I knew I could re-create them easily and for less money. I bought the pom poms at AC Moore and used white thumb tacks and a hot glue gun.

Project Details:
I first used a staple gun to attach the fabric onto the back of the board:

Next, I used my thumb as an easy way to pinpoint the next silver tack and marked it with a pen.
On the wall:
 Push Pins! I especially love the sparkly silver ones:
This took me only about five minutes to do. Aren't they so pretty?!

Before and After:

I am loving this new updated look!
