It has taken quite sometime but it is finally done. Thanks to the man in my life for sacrificing an entire Saturday to finish building it and helping my vision come to light. It all began when I saw in my Pottery Barn catalog, the solution to my disorganization problems. You see, I kinda have a little bit of scatterbrainedness (it's totally a word) when it comes to things like papers to sign, appointments to remember and who needs to be where, when! Well the beautiful Pottery Barn version was a whopping $600 or more so I kissed the idea goodbye, that is until I was blog hopping and saw Sara's version, that she did without and manly help (I want to be her when I grow up, power tools scare me) So I knew what I wanted but not a clue as to how to do it! So I enlisted my manly man of a husband to help with the power tools part and viola here you have my fabulous Message Center. The whole thing is about 4 and a half feet square. Each square is aprox. 12 inches. There is peg board, chalk board, white board, steel board for magnets, fabric padded boards and corkboard. I used my bag-o-vinyl scraps that Shannon gave to me to add my kids names and days of the week so I can remember when scouts is because for the life of me I can never remember!! I also made a re-usable calender on one of the whiteboard squares, just squares of vinyl and days of the week, so i can erase each month and write in a new month! I couldn't be happier with how it turned out and I haven't forgotten scouts or Activity days since!!
