Hi, I’m Karen, and I blog at Gardenchick. I love a good DIY project and was so glad to join MaryAnn and others at Domestically Speaking for the Burlap Lovers Series. Challenged to create a fall burlap themed project, I decided to complete an idea I have had in mind for my kitchen. This will be my second kitchen project using burlap. Some old bar stools received a makeover using burlap feed sacks. I was in need of a bulletin board and had originally planned to make one out of one of the burlap seed sacks I had collected. But, given the fact it’s fall, and Thanksgiving is just around the corner, I opted to go with a fall theme.
The felt leaf was too bright and didn’t match the little wooden leaves I want to use for thumbtacks, so I painted it with a nutmeg brown.
The same goes for the plain frame around the bulletin board, so after placing newspaper over the cork, I spray painted it brown.
Next, the burlap was attached using a spray on adhesive.
And the same with the felt leave.
Using E6000 glue, the flat wooden leaves were attached to pushpins to complete the fall theme.
Now, a new bulletin board is ready for my kitchen wall.
