Fancy Bulletin Board


This bulletin board is far from boring. In fact, this Fancy Bulletin Board tutorial will show you how to decorate a bulletin board that is out of this world. With a crackle finish, this board's frame looks as though it could be an antique. What truly makes this a beautiful bulletin board, however, is the adorable moon and stars that adorn it. Tack up important memos or cherished photos onto this starry backdrop that will keep your desk from getting cluttery while adding a touch of whimsy to any room.
