Rated 4 out of 5 by AshleyPB Great look! Hard to hang.
I love the look of this message board. It's exactly what I was looking for. I ordered the largest size. It is in my kitchen and I use it to display my children's artwork and projects. It's looks great! It is very heavy and I had to get help to hang it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Vsara1 way too heavy
The color was pretty and quality was good but to hang on a wall, and to constantly be pushing items into it because that is the use of it, did not make sense to me, Item was just way too heavy. Shockingly heavy. It was hard for me to lift it and even hold it on the wall to see where it looked good.
I returned both, and would not recommend this product to someone else unless they were using it sparingly to push things on it. It did not need to be made this heavy.

This looks great on the wall in my mudroom - it's where my kids keep their backpacks and I tack up all their school announcements, artwork and school calendar.

Bought the largest message board and it looks great in my craft room...still have room left over after I put up my stuff. It's like a piece of art as it takes up a big wall!

Rated 5 out of 5 by NevadaShopper Well made product.
This product exceeded my expectations. Well made and the hangers on the back are substantial....no cheap hardware here. It was an excellent addition to the room I purchased it for. Very happy with purchase!

This board is top quality, however, it is very heavy. Unless you are really handy, hire a professional to hang. We hung it in our laundry room, and it is perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by KSdecorator Great for any style!
If you are debating whether to invest in these message boards, I promise you won't be sorry! My husband is handy and lobbied to make one for our family. I'm so glad I bit the bullet and bought one from Ballard! These are very well constructed and the burlap and nail head trim add class and warmth. I don't think we could have made anything that would look quite this good. I hung the narrow message board over the Suzanne Kasler hooks in our mud room and am incredibly pleased with the results!

by leelee303 Worth it!
Yes I struggled with this purchase. It's ridiculously expensive for a piece of wood wrapped in burlap but I'm so glad I just bit the bullet and ordered. It is so simple, elegant, beautiful... did I just refer to a burlap board as beautiful? .. but it really is!! Definitely worth it. I think I'm going to decorate it seasonally or hang inspirational quotes. I don't know yet. I didn't buy it for my office, it is hanging right in my living room and looks awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cheriew Simple but so classy
I purchased two bulletin boards and am extremely pleased with them. They are very sturdy and extremely attractive. I purchased a framed bulletin board from another source. The price was comparable but it was in no way comparable in quality. Mounting was simple. The boards have surpassed my expectations!

Rated 5 out of 5 by mfl216 Beautiful and great quality!
Just received mine today and I absolutely love it! The quality is really great (very sturdy) and the design is beautiful--exactly what I was looking for. My only complaint: I ordered the largest size and it came with a piece of paper that suggested ordering the Ballard Design Power Hooks to hang it with. I assumed that hanging hardware would be included and was pretty annoyed that Ballard sells a product to help with the hanging and didn't suggest to me to order it when I added the message board to my cart in the first place. Now I have to order the hooks separately and wait for them to be delivered before I can hang this piece!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rico This product is very sturdy.
Product is very nice but it was missing one of the nail heads. I was disappointed as this is one of the main features of the board.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rumor Fantastic Quality for the price!
We bought every size to use in our new office space and we absolutely love them. They are sturdy and really a fantastic quality product. Once they arrived we're surprised they didn't cost more due to how well made they are. Our décor is industrial so they fit in really nicely in both our male and female director's offices. Do not be afraid to try these. My boss and I are VERY fussy and we love them:)

Purchased the extra large board to hang horizontally in a hallway by the kids' bedrooms. Put a world map on it and a printout of all the places with years we've gone on trips with map pins. This is a great board and looks fantastic (high end)!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by alwaysshopping4fam Pretty and Functional
Finally getting organized in 2015! I bought some pieces from the Original Home Office Collection and this Burlap Board in the largest size. It fills the walls space quite nicely, and it's great to have all my little random items pinned in one area. I placed a beautiful green wreath in the middle of the board to add a decorative touch. I love this Message Board!

I ordered 2 of the smaller size message boards. I was putting together a wall in my office that incorporates these boards with small canvas artwork. It came together beautifully. **You need picture hanging wire for these**

Rated 5 out of 5 by hummingbird Sturdy, well-made eye-candy
I'm so glad I got this board! I ordered the second-largest size. I use it to post inspirational clippings of all sorts and it makes me happy every time I see it. It is very heavy (think furniture!) and well made. Secure to the wall with care since it is so heavy -- or consider leaning it against the back of a desk. It's a purchase you won't regret and won't ever go out of style.
