Round-up :: DIY Message Boards

Having difficulty juggling appointments, activities and homework schedules for your family? As my kids have gotten older, I’ve found that it’s more and more challenging to kept it all straight. A message board in our kitchen nook has helped us tremendously. If you are are need of a command center, I’ve rounded up a few DIY message board options that you may want to consider.

Love this sleek, colorful dry-erase message board via BHG. It’s made from a piece of glass that’s simply been painted on the back and framed. Love!

This DIY magnetic board from 4 Men and 1 Lady, is made of a 26 gauge galvanized steel sheet and then framed.  It also doubles as a dry erase board for quick messages. Would love great in a kitchen, mudroom or playroom.

The folks at Martha Stewart created this chic message center using a store-bought cork board that was painted and upgraded with a brass rod to hold mail and hooks to hold keys. Love the many functions it provides!

Although this option isn’t as versatile as the others, I love the simplicity. The could be a fun DIY project or purchased through George & Willy.

happy organizing,

Organized Closet on a Budget

An organized space is like a breath of fresh air. It calms us. For most, wardrobe closets can be some of the most unorganized spaces in their home. Therefore I always recommend closet systems to help keep reach in and walk-in closets organized.  These systems can be pricey, so when I stumbled across this gorgeous black and white organized closet – done on a serious budget – I had to share it with you.  Nina Holst of Stylizimo created a beautiful walk-in-closet using items mostly from Ikea. The DIY shoe rack created with a series of Ikea’s BYGEL towel rods and spray painted gold is brilliant!

extra storage space // giveaway on simplifiedbee.com #giveaway #storage

Downsizing yet, not wanting to part with family keepsakes and furniture? Overflowing with must keep documents or books? Simply in transition and need temporary storage? Whatever the reason, extra storage space is often times a necessity in getting organized. However, handing over your precious collections, heirloom furniture and cherished books to just any storage company can be a costly mistake. That’s why I was thrilled to learn about Extra Space Storage and how they pride themselves at being the best in four different areas – customer service, cleanliness, convenience and security. With 1,000+ facilities and 25+ years in the business, their mission is clear – to make the self storage experience as convenient and hassle-free as possible. The folks at Extra Space take the business of storing people’s belongings, keepsakes and memories very seriously. Which is why their facilities implement the highest security technology, perimeter fencing and the majority have a manager that lives on site. They even have climate controlled units available for those family photos, antiques and artwork you want to preserve.
