Carpet Tiles as Bulletin Board

Carpet Tiles as Bulletin Board

There are plenty of ways to mask a bland bulletin board - you can wrap it in fabric, paint it, and on and on. But if the whole idea of a cork board just bores you to begin with, we like this idea, too...

Using carpet tiles is a nice alternative to the standard cork, and can add some texture (and color) to your wall. The late, great Blueprint recommended simply stapling the tiles to your wall, this example on the Flor website was created by attaching the tiles to a thin sheet of MDF. We think this sounds good as it means less holes in your wall, but either way seems to work. For more uses for carpet tiles (besides, you know, as a carpet) click here.
