Using it on a bulletin board is such an easy way to incorporate it into your interiors. These bulletin boards are from ballard designs but you can easily make these yourself. Buy and inexpensive bulletin board from your local craft store and just staple gun the fabric around it. I always put fabric around my bulletin boards. This one has an extra element of some upholstery tacks.
The one thing you do need to remember about burlap is that it is a natural fiber. Before you make a commitment to anything, I would recommend you going to your local fabric store and buying a yard of it and making sure you don't mind the texture of it.
