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!

Downton Abbey Butler’s Bell Memo Board

Downton-Abbey-Butlers-Call-Box

I know many of you will be shocked to learn that I have never seen Downton Abbey. Nope, not even one episode. However, that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate this cute little butler’s bell memo board made by Amy from Atta Girl Says. Since I am clueless when it comes to the hit series, I’ll let Amy take it away…

Burlap and Ribbon Memo Board

The little memo board above the desk of Gina from The Cannary Family was overflowing with pictures and other mementoes. Fortunately, Gina had a large bulletin board in her garage that was practically begging for a makeover. Gina gave it the Ballard treatment with burlap and upholstery tacks but then also added a French memo board twist by creating a design with ribbon. Gina’s new board doesn’t skimp on style or space!

Burlap Message Board

When her husband needed a message board for his home office, Emily from life{illustrated} searched the internet to find one that wasn’t too “pretty.” A burlap covered message board with nail head trim was perfect for the space and crazy easy to make using a thrifted $2 bulletin board. I love what Emily has to say here about not spending more than is “absolutely necessary” on material items. It is hard to fathom spending tons of money on a memo board when you can get something similar for a few dollars and a little creativity!

Burlap Wall Organizer

For Tammy at A Walk in the Countryside this burlap memo board consumed her thoughts day and night until its completion. You know… it was one of those projects where things just don’t go as planned. However, in the end, Tammy came out the victor in her battle against the burlap. With the adjustable rod and cute burlap pouch, I think Tammy totally nailed the look of her inspiration!

Fabric and Ribbon Corkboards

Heather of Fake-It Frugal scored an awesome deal on some corkboards last summer, paying only 75 cents each! They were just your plain old basic corkboards… that is until Heather jazzed them up with fabric, ribbon and beaded trim. We can all use a little more organization in our lives, and it might as well be pretty to boot!

Burlap Message Board

If you have kids in school, you know the overwhelming amount of paper that makes its way home. Crafty Sisters Candace and Nicole created a really awesome burlap message board to combat the paper clutter. The crisp burlap, perfect corners, and straight nailhead trim make the message board look like it came straight from Ballard’s catalog! The sisters’ board is even better though because it’s customized to fit the space and has an open frame in the back that allows for plug access.
