Message Center Bulletin Board


Every Mom knows you have to have a place to organize all the things that go on in your kids life.  When they start school you need it just to keep up with their life.  This was my message center.  It had been this way for 4 years.  It was very ugly and outdated.  My soon-to-be 2nd grader no longer needs to practice the calendar and it just sorta morphed all over this door.  It was time for a makeover of my message center.

I found these cork tiles and it gave me an idea.  They are just four single cork tiles you place stick and peel fasteners too and put right on the surface.

I had a beautiful toile print leftover from a project and it was just enough to transform my tiles.

I cut the fabric to fit and hot glued it to the back of the cork.  I placed the fasteners to the cork tile.  I peeled the gold backing off and put the cork tiles right on my kitchen door.

And here is my new message center, much improved over the old one.  And, best of all it was thrifty!!   The cork tiles are at Walmart and they were $5.94!

I knew you would come up with something adorable. I just love it and I have a rather unsightly area that needs a makeover too.

Sherry, I like your easy to make style! The fabric you chose for this board is so sweet and feminine. Seems like you "graduated" into a big girl message board! Congratulations! I wish I had a hand wreath still hanging on my board. Time flies...
