I repainted a bulletin board that used to be bright red. I LOVE how it turned out. It will be pretty in the classroom too! Don't you think?
|This is what it used to look....cork board under the blue plastic I taped over it....red painted edges.|
It actually used to be gray in my hub's office. But I took it home and painted it red. But I didn't end up using it in the grandkiddie room. I made a giant chalk board instead. They love it so much!
|And I covered it with fabric and ribbons and glittery butterfly pins....|

|Taping up the bulletin board with paper, trash bags, to cover up the cork portion.|
|It use to be a fire engine red for a kiddie room....now I want it for my craft room since all my kiddos are grown and gone.|
|Here is my painted bulletin board after I sprayed 2 coats of the Rustoleum spraypaint on it....You can see how I taped the edges with a trash bag and masking tape....|
|KILZ primer and Valspar are the best...they go on smooth .|
|Valspar and Rustoleum are good spray paints too....I liked this light blue color. It will match my little book boxes in my classroom library. I bought blue, light green, and pink last year and redid the library. CUTE!|
|I covered the bulletin board with a kitchen trash bag and masking tape....not too bad for prep!|
|Here were my 2 fabrics and my ribbon I wanted to use.|
|I sewed the glittery, striped fabric onto 2 sides of the butterfly fabric....and cut it to fit the bulletin board....|
|Then when it was finished I added some embellishments....a couple of glittery butterflies and push pins.|

|I bought some glittery, giant push pins at Hobby Lobby for my painted bulletin board redo. I put one in the center of each cute little flower.|
|Finished bulletin board redo....it turned out just like I wanted.|
|I think it will look great in my classroom this year! A LOT better looking than the plain red one. I love spray paint!|
