Metal Memo Boards


2013 Is Off To A Great Start!
The kids are back at school and the list of projects have me all (excited) psyched!!!
Who doesn't love and need Memo Boards?
Metal is one of the biggest things in decorating right now, why not Metal Memo Boards? 
I knew they would be the perfect addition to my new (in progress) home office. Now I can have fun decorating and displaying each week's projects. Who knows it may even change the way I feel about doing housework or not :)


So, I was lucky to find some metal memo boards online cheap and a great size. The first thing I did was cut out brown packing paper to the same size of the boards. It makes it easy to experiment where to put them.


 For a good week the brown paper was taped up just like this. Nothing wrong with hanging the memo boards horizontal. Something was off I knew the memo boards needed some height. Vertical was the way to go to hang the memo boards after all.


I'm pleased I took my time in deciding where they should go. Less holes to fix!


Here I'm looking into the room from the foyer.

Also, if you want to make your own, you could just use a large old picture frame and mount a piece of metal from Home Depot or Lowes in the same place the glass would go. They also sell metal snips to cut it to the correct size. You could paint the metal or seal it with clear coat. Either way those small magnets from the craft store will hold all your important stuff perfectly.


Thanks for stopping by!

XO,
Dee

Dee, what a clever idea and finding them already made was a big help. I love your little space to create. I have a list a mile long of things to do and blog about. I always have the ideas, but not enough time.

I rarely see anything metal for a good price, but I do have the same iron hooks as on your door, think I picked them up years ago at Kohls.

Your boards look great. I just hung similar ones in my daughter's room using the Command (brand) Velcro style hangers to avoid holes. They will hold up to 3-4lbs. Looking forward to seeing more of your office update....working on the same thing :)

Your memo boards look great in your office. I like the idea of taping brown paper to the wall first to see what they would look like. I know I'm going to use that idea so I don't have so many holes to fill.

Nice idea...it goes perfectly with your décor! Thanks for following me...I will be keeping in touch, am following, you now , too!

Jaybird said...

Great idea!! They look wonderful in your room!
FYI...earrings who have lost their mates :^( make wonderful magnet decor! Just nip the back off with heavy wire cutters, and E6000 them to a small round magnet...presto a pretty magnet for your wonderful boards!!
Blessings,
J
