Pinboard Idea

I first saw this on Pinterest and tracked it back to a blog and then to Pottery Barn Teens

They call them Style Boards but PBTeen was closing them out, so even if I wanted to duplicate this idea, most of the elements are no longer available. I started thinking of all of the many things this kind of Pinboard could be used for and how I could create it for myself.

The ones in the picture are from Pottery Barn Teen and range from $14 to $18 a tile, on sale…. so to simplify things, I rounded them each to $15.

16 tiles in four rows of four

Print Fabric-Covered tackboard includes 10 pushpins.  $15 x 4
Solid Fabric-Covered tackboard includes 10 pushpins.  $15 x 5
Dry-Erase Board includes 1 dry-erase pen and 1 eraser. $15
Chalkboard includes 5 pieces of chalk and 1 chalkboard eraser. $15
Pegboard includes 10 hooks. $15
Corkboard includes 10 pushpins. $15 x 3
Galvi-board includes 5 magnets. $15

$200 for the 16 tiles minus the molding at Pottery Barn Teens

I figured I could use Artist’s Canvas and cover individual blocks/squares with fabric, acrylic paint, corkboard sheets, chalkboard paint, magnetic paint, dry erase board sheets

On Amazon, I can buy…

9×12 Artist Canvas 3 7-packs at $21 each = $63
4 rows of five tiles:
6 painted (2 each of pink, yellow and green) Acrylic paint for 6 (already have)
6 fabric covered (stripe, dotted, plaid, flower, check, other) Assorted fabrics for 6 (already have)
4 chalkboard (black) Chalkboard paint $19
4 magnetic board (green) Magnet paint $30
Push Pins 600 for $8
Chalk $9 (with eraser)
Magnets 56 for $15

Alternative or addition Tackboard with pushpins $11

Total $133

So, buy doing it myself, I actually save $75 plus I can use the colors, prints and fabrics I want instead of what PBTeens had for sale.
