Brush Up Your Bulletin Boards with Painted Bulletin Boards

Not all bulletin boards are created equal. In fact, bulletin boards don’t even have to be covered in paper these days. How does that work?  This idea by Mandy, a 4th Grade Teacher, from Brewton, AL explains how teachers can make their bulletin boards pop with effective educational content in a whole new way. Check out these painted bulletin boards!

Painted Bulletin Boards

“Last year, I skipped bulletin board backing and painted all of my bulletin boards with leftover semi-gloss paint from a house remodel,” Mandy explains.  “Now, instead of changing out faded, hole-y paper every time I need a switch, I only have to change borders and content. The painted displays are super-easy to clean; little handprints or stray pencil marks are gone with the swipe of a wet wipe!”

While Mandy used semi-gloss paint, it would be fine to use a high-gloss paint, as well. Flat paint makes it a bit difficult to get stray marks off and clean it effectively, but if that’s what you have left over from a project, feel free to use it. Before you paint, always check with your school to make sure that they’re okay with you altering the board surface.
