Fabric covered cork board with nail head trim. Made 2 of these for Christmas, my only problem was the nail head trim I used was too long and the nails poke through the back of the board. Other than that they turned out super cute!
Use cork board squares and cover some with scrapbook paper, magnetic paint, chalkboard paint add a frame to finish it. Great idea for a family msg center or even a school bulletin board, or for the girls room, love love love it
