Here's a before photo - just a calendar hung here.
Pottery Barn has a customized organization system that enables you to create your own message/organization system. The only problem is their systems would cost $44 (on sale) for each piece I wanted. I set out to make an area myself using my DIY skills. I started looking for used items that would work in the area. You can imagine how excited I was to find a whiteboard calendar for .99 cents, a pin board for $1.99 and cork board for .49 cents. Although they did need a little sprucing up. Here they are with their imperfections.
As you can see by the photo, the whiteboard needed a good cleaning.
The pin board needed some touch ups that were easily fixed with a sharpie pen and stapler.
Here's my new daily organization station.
(The location of my organization station makes it difficult to get a nice photo shot.)
The white board on the top was purchased at Micheal's using a gift card and 40% off coupon making it $5.00. I'll be exchanging it because I found a dented area on the top left.
Here are the other pieces all cleaned up.
I added some extra tacks and magnets from my office. I also added "notes" using some left over lettering from our daughters wedding.
My version for $9 compared to $142 at Pottery Barn.
