I cannot keep track of all of the school calendars, memos, and tiny pieces of paper that bombard me on a daily basis. I live for memo boards as a place to display all those reminders of things I need to do or people I need to call. If it’s not staring me in the face, I’ll just forget about it. Memo boards help to keep me sane organized.
Back in January, I mentioned the need for more organization in my mud room. Actually it’s not really a mud room, just a wee hallway and closet back by the garage door. I like to pretend it’s loftier space than it is and call it a ‘mud room’.
The easiest way to make a memo board is to find a bulletin board in the size you want and cover it with fabric. Well I’m a troublesome creature and after a search, I couldn’t find a frame in the exact size I wanted, so I decided to just build a tall narrow memo board to fit the hall space.
