Fun, Junky Message Board

I love a good message board.  Maybe it is the allure of keeping all important things together, keeping the family organized and all on the same page.  Maybe it is because they are so fun to make, fun to use junk in unexpected ways.  At any rate, I have made another message center :).

After painting a piece of plywood red, teal, navy, green, and turquoise for the backboard, I used a Chinese checkers board as a magnet board--this one is from the 60's.

complete with checker piece magnets.

A receipt "thingy" makes a great place for lists,

and a breadpan holds supplies, letters, etc.

I usually use something unusual for the hooks, but nothing was hitting me today so instead I painted 3 iron hooks.

This message center is for sale and hopefully will keep some family organized or at least put a smile on their faces.
