With a new school year beginning, I thought I’d refeature this kids command center from Infarrantly Creative that I made for my son a couple of years ago. It is a great tool for encouraging your kids to take more responsibility for their schedules, chores, assignments, etc. I had so much fun designing the board and love all […Read More]

Tame Paper Clutter with Linen Pin Boards

Kris from Driven by Décor had been eyeing Restoration Hardware’s linen pin boards and knew they’d be the answer to her organizing dreams. However, RH’s boards hardly fit her budget or her kitchen wall and its awkwardly placed light switch. Kris turned to DIY and made her own trio of boards using barn wood frames, corkboard, and fabric. They are perfect for taming coupons, invitations, magazine clippings, and all the other papers that like to clutter counters and desks!

Cassie from Hi Sugarplum wanted to create a command center to help her son keep track of his increasingly busy schedule and social life. It wasn’t hard for Cassie to make a DIY version that came in far cheaper than PB Teen’s expensive tile board sets. Cassie says it was surprisingly simple to make and would also be great for a an entire family since the panels can easily be customized to fit your needs.

Linen Message Board with Nailhead Trim

Nailhead Trim Cork Board Bulletin Board

When Emily from On the V Side decided to turn her office into a usable craft space, she says there was no question the walls needed a little “pick-me-up.” Emily started with the “simplest of organizational tools” and created a corkboard for the wall. The fun part was that Emily challenged herself to make it for absolutely no cost, using only items she had on hand. Sounds like a girl after my own heart!

Get Organized with a Family Command Center

With a growing family, Sarah of My Simple Obsession was in need of a command center to keep track of her family’s numerous appointments and notes. She loved one from Pottery Barn but says, “…no way would I ever pay $500 dollars or even close to that for a command center that I could make myself.  So I did! And for a fraction of that price!!” I just love Sarah’s “Pin it” corkboard tile and how she spruced up her board with fabric rosette thumbtacks and a bunting. So cute!

Kids Art Boards

Laura from Inspiration for Moms was in the process of remodeling her son’s bedroom when she stumbled upon utility boards from Pottery Barn Kids. Laura loved the idea of adding a creative area to her son’s room… just not at Pottery Barn prices. Instead, she was able to make two boards for half the cost of one of their boards! Laura’s son is happy, and so is her wallet!

Burlap Message Board

DIY burlap message board - Ballard Designs inspired

Ballard’s burlap message board has gotten a lot of knock-off love throughout the blogosphere. Considering all the renditions I have seen of the popular board, I can’t help but be a little surprised when I come across a new take on it. Mel from {Frantz} Featherings created a spot-on copycat by attaching corkboard to a canvas and then wrapping it with burlap. While Mel says the canvas is a pricier alternative to foam core, it really helped her achieve the look she was after.
