Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 100 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works perfectly in the space! My first board had to be returned because of glue coming through and causing a noticeable spot on the board. Ballards was most helpful in the return and quickly sent me a new item which I was extremely happy with. I have the board running vertically(about 18 inches from the floor) in my newly decorated office and not only does it provide a place to hang items which are meaningful to me, it is also visually pleasing and adds a bit of artistic element to the wall. it is very rugged and a heavy board and holds the tacks very well. I also ordered some of the stunning style tacks from Ballards (bees etc.) to give it an even more interesting and artistic look. Overall, I am very pleased with this product. It looks great in the space and adds as much to the room as a piece of furniture. Definitely would recommend the item. May 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product This board was exactly as I expected. The picture is very accurate. I ordered the medium size board and it looks great in our kitchen with invitations, memos, etc! May 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Happy I'm very happy with my purchase. I hung this in our kitchen and it looks great. April 12, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Looks exactly like catalog images The board came well packaged and was in perfect condition. It is a little heavy, but looks fantastic. February 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sturdy, practical and pretty I bought this item to replace a french bulletin board. It is very sturdy and practical. It takes up a whole wall in my office, but it looks fantastic! January 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by superior materials, excellent construction Bought the burlap dust ruffle and burlap message board. The burlap was good quality, very crisp, not limp gunny sack material. The dust ruffle was well-made and prettier than it appears in the catalog. The message board is very sturdy and not lightweight or cheap looking. I actually put 2 of the message boards together and use as a headboard. January 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great functional design This message board is well made and looks great on a side wall of our kitchen. Keeps us organized and gives a great design look from the traditional bulletin board. January 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by A perfect marriage of style and function! I love my new message board!! I had been considering purchasing it for about six months because I loved the look of it, but one review said that is was nearly impossible to insert push pins into the hard board. I finally decided to give it a try because I loved the look of it and found that this is not the case at all with my board. I'm thinking that maybe the board has been modified since that person wrote their review. The message board has a perfect backing for inserting push pins - not too hard at all. Also, I love the burlap cover because is allows me to easily hang the photo button pins that I get from my son's sports pictures. I just slide the pin right down into the burlap. It is a great addition to my room. October 17, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality bulletin board I love these bulletin boards. I purchased the small ones to use to hang jewelry on and have two large ones for my office. They are great quality bulletin boards but still them! October 12, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by More stylish than the usual cork board The burlap message boards are a nice change from the usual cork boards. They look a little more stylish. I'm happy with the purchase September 19, 2012

Rated 5 out of 5 by Best looking message board out there:) I love this board...well made and works well with our decor. Waited to buy with special offer. March 30, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exactly what I expected I just love it. High quality, clean and crisp look. Easy to hang...not to heavy Just perfect. March 22, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautifully constructed and attractive. The piece is surprisingly heavy. The burlap and nailheads are very nicely done. Enjoying the board in my studio immensly! March 8, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by This bulleting board is beautiful! This bulletin board is beautiful because of the burlap covering. It's so much nicer looking than a plain cork board! I was also very happy with the quality and workmanship. March 4, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfectly Pleased! I love my new burlap message board. I had admired it in previous catalogs, but the two sizes offered would not work for my space. Recently a medium size was added that works perfectly on my wall. I particularly like the burlap message board becasue it doesn't have a wooden frame. It goes with all decor. I use it to display Christmas card photos from family and friends. I like to show off these special creations all year long. March 4, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well made I chose the largest size and hung it horizontally in my home office behind my desk. Very solid and good looking. It is quite heavy and must be well anchored to the wall. Will be ordering one for my daughter. February 23, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Solid, elegant I bought this board because it enables me to bring imagination to my den. The board is heavy and solid. The linen cloth wrapped around and the nail heads add a touch of elegance to my den. It's also very easy to pin and unpin items. It also comes with hanging hooks on the back that allows you to hang vertically or horizontally, or simply lean it against a wall. February 9, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! I was originally planning on having a very large bulletin board custom framed for a wall in my kitchen, but I saw this in the Ballard catalog and thought I would give it a try. I'm so glad I did - I love it! It's very nicely made and much more sturdy than I expected. I was a little worried after reading reviews for a bulletin board on a competitor's site that it would be hard to get push pins in, but it's not at all. They go in easily, and after about a month of use, I'm not seeing any wear on the burlap from the pins. I'm tempted to get another one of these for my office. Definitely recommend. February 8, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Burlap Board Love this piece! Great for organizing everything from invitations to kids' artwork in a stylish way. You'll need 2 people to hang though and some sheetrock anchors... this piece is extremely heavy!! January 22, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Better than expected! The bulletin board looks even better than the pictures! It has a rugged look. The nail heads give it refinement! It is awesome! January 18, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good looking for a casual display. Nice. Matching brass nail head tacks would be nice. December 30, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for my Home Office I like the looks of the burlap board. It was heavier than I expected but the upholstery tacks I am using as pins go in very easy. December 28, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fabulous to look at!! This is a very substantial and unique looking bulletin board. Looks fabulous in my home office. I purchased the adorable little Bee tacks to use with it. Very happy. November 1, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by A beautiful, casual look for a bulletin board. It was perfect for my needs. It has a beautiful, casual look for a bulletin board. It was perfect for my space. September 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Much More Substantial I purchased the larger sized board, and when it arrived was amazed at just how sturdy and substantial the board is. Push pins go in easily, and the overall look has enhanced my office space. September 14, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good looking message board I bought this board for my mudroom, and wanted something that would look good with or without papers on it. It does, and seems very sturdy. It's well made, but I also expected that for the significant price. I do find it quite heavy, however, and also it is thick--when you mount it, it is like hanging up a heavy picture. Something to keep in mind if you have old plaster walls that crack easily. Overall, pleased with the purchase. July 17, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by RIGHT SIZE Looking for a non-descript bulletin board for my small office. The look and size were perfect. Must be a popular item because I did have to wait to receive it. June 12, 2011
