Burlap Message Board is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 120.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really nice This is very well made - very heavy. I got the largest board and it is a welcome item in my office.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Burlap Message Board I love the design of the board. It is a mix between casual and classy! Can't wait to set up my study and hang the message board.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice looking! This is a nice looking, unique, well made alternative to the regular bulletin board.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Bulletin Board 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great size 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 from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality product! 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!
Date published: 2016-07-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 from 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 from 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 5 out of 5 by from 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:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great message board! 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 from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice looking I had been looking for a bulletin board to display my grandson's artwork, and I was very pleased with this one because it is not only functional, but also very nice looking!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice quality 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 from Versatile Message Board Much heavier than I expected--very sturdy--and can be hung in either direction.
Date published: 2015-02-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

It's a perfect size; I put it in my kitchen and have a calendar on it to keep track of daily appointments (and birthday reminders too!); it's also a great place for my shopping list - I can easily add items to my grocery list.
