View Full Version : Large display board

20-01-2011, 08:07 AM
Hi I am looking at buying quite a large display board for the wall to display the children's work on as the white tack is ruining my kitchen walls and it looks like a nursery in here. I love having all their work displayed just need somewhere now to put it.
Any ideas where I can buy one from?

I got mine from Amazon. I think they're a bit cheaper.

I got mine from Amazon too. Careful on the sizing though, I bought one and had to send it back as it was too big, finally had the size I wanted delivered this morning. Hx

Mine is 120 cm x 200 cm so quite big. But I did measure the wall before I ordered it;)

I bought a cork display board from Staples which is on the wall in my dining room but I LOVE the one you've posted Manjay. Wonder if I can persuade DH that I need another lol!

OH got some hardboard, put a basic frame round it and some picture wire to hang it up on my picture rails with old fashioned picture hooks.

My giggest board is about 6ft long and 4 ft high. Its a biggun...but we have lots to put up. the idea is when i finish on a thursday evening OH takes it all down and puts in the spare room so we dont live in a nursery.

does this happen??

does it heck!

Big fancy meal with friends at new years.....we all sat amongst the lovely art work in the dining room!

LOL Parsley. Mine is screwed into the wall so we're always eating amongst the children's display lol! My problem is I have so much I want to put up I'm running out of walls. DH keeps reminding me that this is our house but I hate the wallpaper (we haven't decorated the lounge or dining room since we moved in!) so I'm trying to cover it over loL!

The Amazon ones are felt (I think they're the same as the one Manjay has posted, but slightly cheaper). I've got dark blue ones & they're fab. I use drawing pins to stick things up and also have velcro on the children's photos so they stick on themselves.
