DIY: Message Board

I finished making my message board and wanted to share with you!


You may remember me posting my inspiration HERE.  Unfortunately I didn't take pictures of the process...sorry...but I followed THESE instructions. I had to substitute homasote for foam board...my hardware store did not carry it.  I left off the pockets too...but I can always add later if I want.


Here is a view of what it used to look like....seemed very cluttered and un-organized. It drove me crazy!

Now I have everything in one place and at eye level for quick reminders. I love how it has dedicated sections for each person.  The "A" is for Avery, "D" is for Dawson, and (since I only made 3 spaces) I used "P" for anything not related to the kids.

This is what it looks like coming in from our garage....
and what it looks like from kitchen...
I am happy with the results. 
I still have plans to (one of these days) add bead board underneath with hooks going all the way down, but for now this works!
