An Awesome Bulletin Board from Choose to Thrive

I LLLLLOVE Choose to Thrive's blog.  Nike only makes things from what she has on hand and has made a goal to redecorate her house on $0.  My kind of girl!  You totally need to check out her blog!

Here's a great post she did just last week and I begged her to let me repost it over here:

Ballard Designs inspired bulletin board … from a diaper box and an old movie

I have a problem.  A big, big problem.
I’m an obsessive crafter and DIYer with a very short attention span. That means I have several large bins full of half-finished and non-even-started projects that keep piling up. 
Toss a layoff and a lousy economy into the mix and I decided that now was a great time to stop spending money on anything and everything crafty-DIY-projecty until I used up what I already had on hand.
No money. No shopping.  No problem.
But, I also realized that as long as these projects were tucked away, I’d keep forgetting about them and never finish. 
So what to do?
I saw these in the Ballard Designs catalogue and knew this would be a perfect way to keep visual track of everything.

The only problem was that I didn’t have an extra magnet or bulletin board on hand that I could recover with fabric.


(FROM DIAPER BOX TO BULLETIN?!!--check below and then link up to her site)


They were package in two layers of cardboard.  Hmmmm.


I didn’t have any large, random sheets of cardboard lying around the house, but I did have plenty of these …

This project showed me that the ability to fuel my passion to create has nothing to with dollars and everything to do with attitude.
I choose to THRIVE.
Now all I need is a brilliant idea for some cute bulletin board hangers.

  1. This is so cool! I would have never thought to use a diaper box as the base for a bulletin board. What a great idea.

  6. I don't create a leave a response, however after reading a lot of responses here "An Awesome Bulletin Board from Choose to Thrive". I do have 2 questions for you if you do not mind. Could it be only me or does it look like like a few of the responses look as if they are written by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing on other sites, I would like to follow anything new you have to post. Would you make a list of every one of all your social networking sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
