DIY Message Center

If you saw my last articles, you know my husband gave me free rein to decorate his office. It was a BLANK SLATE. We decided on an industrial chic theme which totally blends in with style going on in the rest of the building.

Here are the first and second projects I shared.

This one was super fun, thrifty, and useful, a Message Center.

DIY Message CenterIt is on the wall behind the desk and I just love it! I started by using the Martha Stewart Precious Metals paint chip samples from Home Depot to make the calendar. I put it in a cheapie picture frame from Hobby Lobby. One that has clips and no actual frame with the glass.

DIY Message CenterNext, I measured out cardboard pieces to go on either side of the frame and attached cork boards to the cardboard using the enclosed adhesive.

DIY Message CenterI hung the frame on the wall and hammered the cork/cardboard pieces right into the wall using old rusty nails. Then I used my old fence…(AGAIN) and framed it all out to finish it off.

DIY Message CenterThen, I found some metal bins at Joann’s on 70% off clearance! SCORE! I think they were like $2 each.

DIY Message CenterSo here it is! I will let the photos speak for themselves.
