too much paper on walls

So our school does not allow us to cover up our bulletin boards but I really want to use a black and bright color scheme this year. Do you think just using borders will look ok, or will it seriously lack?

I came from a school were I could put up tons of paper and I felt it just tied everything together and created a nice calming atmosphere. I never feel my new room is "done", it seems to lack something. Anyone else been told they can't cover bulletin boards?

That would drive me crazy! Can you paint them? Or, if this is a fire marshal issue, can you cover them with fabric or sheets that are fire retardant?

Can you double the border similar to this? Maybe that will add a little something to it.

Honestly, no paper would be fine. I've never been told we can't use paper, but years ago I had a gushing ac that ran down my whiteboard (that was turned into a bulletin board). After that, I just put border on the white board and no paper.

We are allowed to have paper, but I never have. I've only ever put border up. I repainted my boards white in the Summer if they needed it (usually just the ones kids touched all the time).

I didn't need permission to paint boards white, because they were all painted white. I would definitely ask for permission before painting your boards black. Also, boards absorb paint like crazy, so it will be a bit of a laborious process the first time!

Other options - fabric or netting?

Will they allow plastic instead of paper? I used the cheap tablecloths on mine. Border only will be fine, too! Paint is also good.

Can you use cloth? The fire department came in and said we had too much paper on the walls so many switched to fireproof cloth.

That double border looks really pretty.

I would do fireproof cloth. I cannot imagine covering my boards. I would have to paint them or do something.

I'd use cloth or paint, as others have suggested, and if that's not an option I'd change to a more natural color scheme that incorporates the brown boards (or something to complement whatever color they are).

No to all the above. Funny though, by the time I get all my anchor charts posted the walls are basically covered.

I'll try a double border and see how that works.
