Have you been on Pinterest yet?
Its so addicting and part of the reason why I wanted to restart the blog!
There are a ton of ideas out there for message centers.
Some of the criteria for my message center were everyone needed a “slot” and somewhere to put bigger things. It also needed to be CUTE!
I found wall organizers similar to these at Target for $11 each. The best part is that each one has 3 slots, so I only needed two. I sprayed them with metallic bronze and they became really similar to the Pottery Barn and Ballard Design versions.
I used hanging plant hooks to hang egg baskets for bulkier items. (ignore the mess of shoes in the background!)
As the school year progresses, I’d like to add a bigger basket for library books that need to go back. I might also replace the “E” and candles with a chalkboard where I can write reminders.
I’ll keep you posted on any changes I make. One major change will be paint color!
