The bulletin board at my daughter's dance studio was in serious need of a makeover. It had had the same paper covering it for years and kids had come through and used the pushpins to poke holes in everything in sight.
I thought that covering it in material would make it more durable, so I asked the office if I could "redo" the bulletin board while I waited on my daughter. It's not perfect, but it is a definite improvement over what was there.
It cost less than $10 for supplies and the only tools I needed were scissors and a staple gun. Easy-peasy!
