Every year I look for a new way to organize my life. Due to the constant ebb and flow of a growing family of 8 I have a personal quest to contain chaos... granted, I've been on that quest for 14 years. The reality is that I'd like to blame my disorganization on my new system that failed... husband figured me out YEARS ago and politely plays along.
So right in time for school, here are a few message centers that may just tame your chaos, or give you a new system to blame, or just look pretty (because you've got it all together):
This is my favorite. Who'd a thunk to make an old headboard into a message center?!?!! CentsationalGirl: I want to live next door to you. What a fantastic idea! Don't you just love it!
JunkmailGems made this darling magnet board out of a GoodWill cookie sheet. I love the tin can that sticks to the board to house pens and pencils.
Inspiration: I'm turning all of my newly painted cabbys into message centers and recipe holders. This shot uses cork. I think I'm going to glue in galvanized metal and cover it with magnets.
Here's a shot from Craftzine. Yet another chalkboard paint creation. I love that you can hide all of your uglies behind your cabinets. That way no one sees when you have tampons or Preparation H on your shopping list.
Love this creation. Message center using wine corks for the cork board. Now, I don't drink wine and honestly wouldn't have a clue where to get the corks... I'll have to raid neighbors trash... but I love the earthy feel of this center.
Now... I just need to finish that school shopping. Maybe after I finish that bag of chocolate chips:)
