Rated 5 out of 5 by from Message Board Review Great quality and very substantial. There are natural slubs in the burlap but once you start pinning, you won’t notice them. I would highly recommend these message boards!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nicer than expected I bought this about a month ago. I had just moved and was looking to spruce up my home office with something practical yet beautiful. It serves both purposes perfectly. A little tough to hang horizontally, but both options are available pre-stalled. I just love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have purchased 2 of these I was recently updating my laundry room since I spend so much time in there and saw a vignette in the winter catalogue that included this board along with several other things: metal pegs, industrial bench, drying rack, etc. So I purchased the large burlap message board hoping to cover a large unsightly fuse box. It did the job perfectly and looks great. It is fun to keep family memos and pictures on as well. I liked it so much that when I was updating my daughter's room I added one just like it above her desk. Looks 100x better than those cheap boards you can pick up at a box store and is worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big and beautiful I ordered the large Burlap Message board for my office. It is great and has lots of space for pictures, notes and tear-sheets. I should have ordered it sooner. It is heavy, so be aware. However, once up, pins are easy to stick into the burlap. The large tacks around the edge are a nice touch. If I had the room, I would order another one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding! I could not be more pleased with this product. It is exactly as advertised. Heavy, solid, and a perfect addition to my kitchen. I ordered the largest size and it works great as a centralized message center.

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!

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 Love it! Great board to keep your love one's pictures or any other special note or reminder handy. Easy to use and great looking.
