my Pottery Barn magnet boards in 2007
Long before Pinterest came along, I was pinning inspirational ideas and memories on a real bulletin board. As long as I can remember, I’ve had a board of some sort, even if it was just the back of my bedroom door. I would collect pictures, quotes, and favorite images and put them up together in one place for happiness and inspiration. Even now that I’m an all digi kind of gal, I can’t live without my real life boards!
I’m in the mood to redo my boards and I would like to help my kids start curating their own collections so I’ve been looking for ideas. There are so many to choose from!

A bulletin board can be a design focal point in a room.
Or it can be simply a small addition.
Clipboards are a great way to be able to change around an inspiration board in an instant.
Linen pinboard from Pottery Barn = beautiful elegance.
DIY homasote boards are great for those on a tight budget.
Pottery Barn Teen bulletin board tiles are perfect for mixing and matching.
You can really make a pinboard from just about anything!
I love the way the shutters are used here!
In fact, you don’t even have to use a “board” format at all. Art wires are a fun alternative!
There’s just something wonderful about having a place to display some visual inspiration.
Best of all, you can change it around any time you want to!
