RV Bulletin Board Ideas

Keep Important Information, Pictures, Recipes, etc., Organized and Where You Can See Them!

There are so many great ways to make bulletin boards to hang in your RV!  It’s one of the best ways to stay organized….no more pieces of paper, coupons, recipe clippings, etc., floating around in Never-Never Land.

The one shown above is from Stacks and Stacks.  I must say, this is one of the most efficient bulletin boards I’ve found.  Lots of built-in storage space, which we are constantly on the lookout for inside our RVs!  You can get more information on this handy item at Stacks and Stacks.  Just click this link:  Storage & Organizationby Stacks and Stacks.  Did you know they have FREE SHIPPING on over 30,000 items?  Nice to know!

 

Magnetic bulletin boards have always been a favorite.  Use magnetic “buttons” to affix your items instead of push pins.  You can even attach little magnetic containers to these boards to hold everything from pins to spices.  You can find these here:   Storage & Organization at Stacks and Stacks

 

 

 

 

Don’t have much wall space for a bulletin board?  This one is only 7″ w. x 18″ high and has a bulletin board, a place for a photo, and a place to hang your keys.  And only $16.00 at Amazon! Nexxt PN19690-4 Poste Series Message Center With Cork Board and Metal Post, 7 by 18 by -3/4-Inch

 

 

 

 

While dancing around the internet on  my favorite virtual bulletin board website, www.Pinterest.com, I came across these really fabulous ideas posted by other Pinterest fans.  Let these ideas spark creativity in you, too!

 

 

Now, isn’t this just the best excuse for drinking more wine?  This bulletin board is made using wine corks, nestled into a store-bought picture frame.  So easy to do! 

 

 

 

Another cute DIY bulletin board project is to cover pieces of corkboard with fabric and string ribbon through them for hanging.  You can buy corkboard at Amazon by clicking this link:.Cra-Z-Art Classic Cork Tiles, 12×12 Inches, Pack of 4 (12121)

Finally a use for all those old embroidery hoops I never use!  Cut corkboard the size of your hoop, fasten pretty fabric around it, and enclose it in the embroidery hoop.  Voila!  A very decorative bulletin board!

 

 

 

 

Plastic binder file folders available just about anywhere make colorful wall hanging pockets!  They can be cut to size. You can find these everywhere from office supply stores to Walmart.

 

 

 

Again using a store bought picture frame, cut corkboard to fit, cover with decorative fabric, and crisscross ribbon to it.   If you pull the ribbon tight enough, you can simply slip photos, recipes, etc., through the ribbons and not need to use push pins.

 

 

 

 

Simple, elegent and effective…..a beautiful store bought frame with a corkboard you have inserted.

 

 

 

 

 

No wall space available for your bulletin board?  Use the inside of a cupboard!  Just attach corkboard and you’re all set!  If you’d rather have a chalk board for temporary messages, you can paint the inside of your cupboard door with chalkboard paint, available at most paint and hardware stores. 

 

 

 WHERE TO BUY BULLETIN BOARDS:

The best place I’ve found to buy bulletin board squares is through Amazon.  Just click the link. Quartet Natural Cork Tiles for Bulletin Boards, 6 x 6 Inches, 4 Tile Pack (11-150252Q)

  HOW TO HANG A BULLETIN BOARD IN AN RV:

You just never know what is behind that wall you are about to pound a nail into!  Please be careful!  You don’t want to piece tubing or wire.  A good alternative is to use Museum Putty.  It works great and no nails needed!  You can find Museum Putty at Amazon.  Just click the link.

 ADD CUTE PUSH PINS!

Don’t settle for regular old pushpins.  Dress up your boards with decorative pins!  You can find them here:  Decorative Push Pins 5 Big Cupcakes at Amazon.

  

 

 

 

 

“Raise the Roof” with RV Window Coverings

Leave a comment

 

Do You Feel Claustrophobic in Your RV?

RV Window Coverings are Too Low!

 

 One reason we all feel confined in a small RV space is that the ceiling feels low.  There’s an easy fix for that and visually raise the roof!  It’s a fairly simple solution.  Just raise the height of your window coverings to make the windows seem larger and higher.  The bottom of the top window valance should cover the heading of the window, but the height can be as high as you want in order to make the window appear taller.  Camping World has a really great selection of window coverings and parts.  Or, you can make your own valances at a longer length to achieve this effect.

 

Here’s an example of how this would look in your RV.  Camping World also has a custom window coverings department that can help you create this look.

 

 

See  how this simple trick can visually give you higher looking windows?  Adding side panels will also create a strong vertical line, moving the eye upwards.  If you use sheer fabric for the side panels you can pull them shut to create subtle privacy without using your day-night shades.  Notice that the panels are hung outside the windows and not over them.  This creates width to make your windows seem wider, too.  Good idea if you have room to do this.  Also gives your RV a more “residential” feel.  To create even more visual height and you don’t want to use sheer fabric, use a soft, narrow stripe, vertical patterned fabric.

 Try these simple tricks and see what a difference in makes in your RV!
