One of the first DIY’s I ever posted was this Fabric & Nailhead Pinboard. If you were a follower of the blog then, you may remember it or if you want a refresher you can check out the full tutorial here.
Guilty Blogger Confessions Well, it hasn’t really served it’s purpose. I originally made it for an office (that I haven’t even started on) and then it sat against a wall for a while. Around the holidays, I used it on my fireplace only because I didn’t have anything else to put there.
Well, after a trip to the Target Dollar Spot I found some items to breathe new life into my board.
Here’s what I came up with using these items and things I already had around the house…We have a tight entrance off our garage that lands right into our kitchen. It is a major drop zone, especially during the school year. Adding the coat rack really helped but we still needed an area to put the out-the-door essentials and I wanted a mommy command center of sorts.
For the board, I glued the arrow clips and 3 strong magnets on it using Quick Grip Adhesive. I chose that adhesive because it is strong and like the name–quick. The small metal buckets I wanted on magnets so I or the kids could grab them and set them on the table when we want to use the contents. We seem to do everything at our kitchen table–eat, homework, art projects, and the list goes on…
We added a key rack, charging station and used baskets from around the house. The basket right on top we can put library books and movies to return, scratch paper, and other grab and go items. Along the fridge we have our giant calendar. I think life just seems more in order on a giant calendar. This one is from the Organizher line by Mead and I love it because it has a spot for every family member’s schedule and a meal planner. On the fridge we have a spot for mail, a note pad for shopping lists, and more clips for more important papers or invitations.
On the shelves I have binders with our important home information and a basket full of crayons and paper for my little guy. I used the magazine holders to hold all my cook books.
This old microwave cart was donated to us you could say, and it was given a little spray paint makeover. This is such a small space but now it functions for our family.
Have a great Monday!!
