Forbo Bulletin Boards

Forbo bulletin board in red

Now here's an interesting idea: bulletin boards made from linoleum.

Forbo's Marmoleum Bulletin Board is made from 75% rapidly renewable ingredients and contains 53% post industrial recycled content. And it's constructed from all natural ingredients: linseed oil, granulated cork, and pine rosin binders on a jute backing.

Forbo also notes that it's washable and self-healing - puncture marks virtually disappear. There are 12 colors options, ranging from the red shown above to blues, browns, etc.

It's sold in rolls (so you can make a whole bulletin board wall, if you like) intended to be installed direct to wall by a Forbo Master Mechanic - but there are also framed options. (Here's one place you can buy the framed boards.)
