    I'm doing an ocean theme (not very extreme though - just small accents) and would like to keep all my bulletin boards the same color. I plan to use black border with small white dots on all my boards. I'm so conflicted about which color fabric to buy for the boards - black or a bright light blue?

    I have an ocean theme too, and I use both black and blue! The black is great as a word wall background, and it makes student work POP! The blue is great because it goes with all things seasonal and it's a nice, calming color.

    Sorry, I guess that didn't help you much, did it? :) If you want just one, go with the blue.

    I like dark blue and a lighter blue (depths of ocean)

    I would use a blue color - personally I love turquoise with black & white.

    Bulletin Color

    Definitively aqua color. You can get fabric in that color at JoAnn's. That would really pop!

    I would go with blue for an ocean theme, but I use black quite often. I think I'm going to use black fabric this year to cover my bb. I've never used fabric before. Does the black fabric fade over time?

    I vote blue as well! Also, polka dots are my absolute favorite, so I love the border you picked!

    I would go with a torquise with that black and white. Not regular light blue. I agree that black is great for a word wall.

    Absolutely the blue! I think that colorful bulletin boards brighten the room.

    I used black for my word wall last year - it worked.

    I also had purple, dark green and blue - I thought they were good colors and calming.
