Check out this fun Hobby Lobby Bulletin Board we whipped up with just a few items. We used Hobby Lobby cork board and it turned out amazing!
Making that bed though was quite near the death of me, so I finally gave in and decided it was well worth the money to start fresh.
(Y'all, getting that bed made up with clean sheets was an Olympic sized feat ~ so much so that I had to muster up everything in me to keep any potty-words from coming out.)
So a bit ago we bought Caroline a set of full mattresses, and found a headboard similar to this one online. (I can't remember exactly where we purchased it, but I wished I'd realized it was really meant for a queen size bed not full/queen. The board is a little wider than the bed, but it'll do!)
Her dresser was the one I had growing up that we re-painted several years ago, and for now we brought up these garage sale nightstands from the guest bedroom. (Honestly, we don't have guests all that often so it makes more sense for her to use them!)
Then I remembered this frame I'd found on clearance for $3 years ago (we'd actually moved it with us), and realized for just a few dollars we could update it to match perfectly.
We found fabric at Hobby Lobby along with a large piece of cork board . . .
cut the cork board to fit the frame (clearly Caroline and I aren't expert cutters, but my sweet hubby came home and tidied things up a bit to make it work)
I stapled the fabric onto the board . . .
Caroline spray painted the old frame . . .
And for about $8 this Hobby Lobby bulletin board was done!
I found the flowers, lamp, and dishes at Hobby Lobby as well. (Nearly every week there is something awesome to grab at a Hobby Lobby Sale!) You could also buy an already framed corkboard (but using the old wood frame for this board was part of the fun!).
As well as the signs to hang above her bed. (We're actually waiting on one more anchor to go on the left side ~ our store was out but we had one shipped and it's on its way!)
(She was in love with the anchor idea – I'm not totally sold on that anchor pillow but for now it works!)
I'd still like to find some inexpensive curtains and shades for those lamps (those lamps have been re-painted about 16 times, but I think with a new shade they'll do?)
And we may repaint those nightstands one day in a brighter color but for now they're just fine.
We haven't spent a bundle on the room, but it is so much better and should fit her through college. Honestly, She could even take it with her for decorating her dorm room.
If you have a room that's needed some fluffing, a trip to Hobby Lobby might just get you all set up too. 🙂 Be sure to check our insider secrets and grab a Hobby Lobby Coupon too before you go!
