Not Sure about the Bulletin Board Redo



Well, I repainted and recovered my bulletin board and I'm not sure I like it. Scroll down to Thursday's post to see what it looked like before. I decided to go with the same rooster fabric that is on a valance here in the kitchen above my sink window. I have a lot of white in my kitchen - cabinets, wainscoting, table and chairs, accessories - so I'm not sure how good the black looks. I don't want it to stand out too much. I kind of wish I would have done an animal print or some other really cute fabric. I may have to change it again. What do y'all think?

Well I think it looks GREAT!!!

I wouldn't change it at all. Nice job.

Heather said...

i think it looks good, but i think i agree with you that something else should be done to it...

Stacey said...

How about living with it for a few days. Maybe you just need to get used to it. I always have to do that. I think the black makes that pretty molding really stand out. It's pretty and I love the roosters!

Brooke said...

I think it is fabulous! I agree, live with it for a few days and see what you think.

Jboo said...

I love it -- very cool!

Dot said...

I think it looks great. Maybe it will look totally different to you once you put things on it.

I think it looks great!

Shannon said...

I think it looks great! I really like it black. What about sanding it a bit to let the white show through? I think the fabric might be throwing it off too. Although that is super cute. An animal print would look great or the ticking (or was it checked?) fabric you had on it when it was white would look good too.

Blue Castle said...

I'm on a big "paint it black!" kick, so I really love what you did with it! It might grow on you. You can always change it. :)

Christina said...

I think it looks perfect I love the black with the fabric I would not change a thing.

Nancy said...

Oh, I love it! I agree with everyone..sometimes it does take a few days to get use to something different! Nancy

I want to invite you to a party I am having on Friday...I know You love red so, I'm sure you will love it. Drop by and check out the details.

That's not just a bulletin board, that's a piece of folk art! Great job! I love it~Madeline

Sherri S said...

I think it looks fabulous Dahling! I agree with the others. Use it for a few days then if the 'I wanna change it' hits...change it again.

Tracey said...

I like the black. I am not sure about the black with the fabric though?

I like it very much but I love anything with Roosters and I think it's cute black!

Christine said...

I like the black for the trim... I've got LOTS of white in my kitchen as well... all appliances, tile countertops & backsplash, table... I am now trying to put a little black and brown in my kitchen to ground things a little (even though I do appreciate the white). I would have made the same choice.

AndreaLeigh said...

Don't hate me, but I think that particular fabric might look better with a white frame.

MindyMac said...

I absolutely love it! That fabric looks great with the black!

Ruby Red Slippers said...

I have that same fabric-I love it, but a little goes a long way!
I like the bulletin board!

Cathy said...

I love the redo! Looks great!

Tricia Anne said...

Hi Angie,
I think your bulletin board looks great! Shannon mentioned sanding the edges. That sounds like a nice touch too. :o)
I love that rooster fabric!! Oh gosh that is just too cute! :o)
Sincerely ~ Tricia Anne

Sarah@VintageChic said...

I love it!!!!! I think it looks great!

Robin said...

I love it. I wouldn't worry about the color too much. I little something different is good for a room. If you still don't like it later we all know you can use your magic paint brush and change it a little more. Happy decision making.

Barb said...

I love it,you could always send it to me (LOL) you did a great job....Barb

Heather said...

I love it black, really makes the details pop. Just don't know if I like the fabric with the black. How do you feel about the previous fabric with the black paint?

They call me Estatez... said...

Well, since you are so undecided I think you should just send it to me! It would look fab in my kitchen. But in all honesty, I would live with it for a little while and if still doesn't float your boat, paint it white again.

Julie said...

Angie I love it of course I love roosters. It looks great against the red wall.
Where did you get the fabric I love it.
Have a wonderful week
julie

Kim said...

LOVE IT!!!!!

Nora said...

I love the black paint. It may just take some getting used to. If not, maybe if you added a lighter colored fabric it may blend better. I like it but it's all up to you. Good luck!

Wendy @ The Shabby Nest said...

I have a soft spot for roosters...so I personally think it looks great. Maybe you could post a shot with it up in the kitchen and get more specific feedback. It might be overpowering with a lot of white.

Sarah @ Thrifty Decor Chick said...

I think it is just beautiful! Yes, show us a pic in the kitchen!

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

IMHO, it looks great! I really like the rooster fabric on it, and I love the black paint. I never like something right after I finished it. It has to "grow" on me a little bit, and then I wonder why I didn't like it at first! Did that even make sense? It's late. I may need to go to bed. laurie

Barbie said...

Angie,
The black and yellow rooster board is very "Country French"; the white board was "Shabby Chic". Depends on the look you are going for, but I love the Country French - it's elegant. . .As was suggested already, you might try lightly sanding the high edges to give it some 3-dimensional effect; you can always repaint if you don't like the light color showing through. . .

Linda said...

Oh I like it alot this way!
Cute cute!

Lisa ~ A Cottage to Me said...

I think it's perfect! But....if you're not happy with it....I'll take it, LOL! Just kidding!

Libby said...

OH, I like it a lot. I think the black will be a nice compliment to your kitchen. It will make it pop more.

Blessings your way,

Andrea said...

I love the black. Plus, you have other black accents in your kitchen, so it goes well. Love, love, love that fabric. I've been wanting to find an old chair to paint, what else, black and recover the cushion with that fabric. I looked at the pictures of your kitchen, and I have those same rooster plates in mine!

squawmama said...

Silly girl... It looks fabulous and you did such a GREAT job... No worries here...

HUGS,
Donna

Change it?? NO WAY! I love it! You are so talented Angie.

Erin said...

I love it Angie. The black shows off all of the great detail. If you don't like it, try a different fabric and see what you think.

Katie said...

I love it!! It looks great!!!

The Lind Family said...

I Love it...especially the black!

Pattie T. said...

I actually like this better than what you had before. It is a big change, for sure, but I love the fabric and, like someone else commented, I'm into painting anything and everything black these days.

Lisa said...

LOVE THE BULLETIN BOARD. I HAVE SEEN THAT SAME FABRIC.
AND THE RIBBON IN A VASE!!!
THE GREEN SPRAY PAINT, WOW. I'M GETTING MYSELF SOME.

I love it. A punch of black looks good in any room.

Nichole said...

Ooohhhh nice job! I like, I like!

Grandma said...

I LOVE it the way it is now. I wouldn't change a thing. You must tell us where you got the fabric!!

LdyDy Loves Cake said...

Actually, after looking at your post where you show your kitchen...I think the bulletin board will look just fabulous. You have alot of black accents throughout the kitchen, your blackboard, your black photo frames, etc. I think this new update will look really good! oh..and by the way...I really loved your kitchen!

mishebe said...

well honey you know i love it. Have the material and i paint everything black. But you will figure it out what is missing if anything.. good luck .. mishelle

Laurel @ Ducks in a Row said...

I love the black paint, but I think it needs a little oomph. I don't know what that is, good thing there are so many blogs to get inspiration from!

This Little Nest of Mine said...

I love it, I love it, I love it!

Ashley said...

I just read your entire blog from beginning to end! What a talented decorator you are! Thanks for all your wonderful ideas and I can't wait to look each day and see what you've done.

Ashley said...

Angie- after LOOKING and LOOKING when I should be sleeping at your blog and loving it- I see lots of farm windows and am wondering if you are in the market for more? There is a guy in Hawkinsville (near Perry GA) that is selling them for 2 dollars each. I am going to pick some up this week from him and would be happy to pick some up for you. You may or may not be in the market for them, but I hate to see them go waste if you love old farm windows like I do and you obviously do too! Feel free to email me- it's on my page if your interested. Have a great night!
~Ashley

Vanilla Lavender said...
