I have wanted a home organization/message center for a while but wasn't sure exactly what look to go for. I loved the Pottery Barn Rustic Wall Organizer but really didn't have the money to shell out for that. We found a plate holder at an antique store (bottom right) to use for mail and miscellaneous items such as keys and cell phones. The tray (top left) was on clearance at Pier 1 and I thought it would be a good base for a burlap pin board. The whiteboard calendar is from Staples and we used an old pen and ink drawing from my high school art class days to balance out the grouping.
To make the pin board, we cut cardboard to size for the tray.
We used spray adhesive to attach cork to the cardboard.
We then used more spray adhesive to attach burlap to the cork.
The finished product was a cute pin board so that we could get all our cards and papers off of the refrigerator.
The mirror on the right is a story for another post.
