I needed a memo board. One that I can see on my way out the door.
A board to remind me of things to do, things to get, and places to go.
One that is also for my granddaughter so she can leave us notes.
I did not want a typical framed cork bulletin board, or even a fabric one.
Painting the wall with chalk paint was out of the question as it is a narrow space
and would make it look smaller and obviously darker.
So this is what I came up with:
I had three leftover trays that came down when I hung an iron gate in their place.
They have been sitting in the corner of the sunroom until I had a plan for them.
Then came the epiphany . . . I love epiphanies!
I placed three tole trays on the wall that originally had a mirror on it that moved to the stairwell.
This hallway gets so many different shades of light that comes from the window
in the laundry room.
I located the bag of pretty magnets that I stopped using . . . no longer wanted to clutter the
refrigerator with notes . . . Glad I kept them!
I love the location of the tole tray memo boards as I can scan the notes on my way out the door!
No excuse for forgetting something now!
A ready-made pretty background for notes!
I reserved the bottom tray for my granddaughter as it is easily accessible for her.
She has field trip that Pop promised to chaperone . . . so a friendly reminder!
I thought about how I may clutter up a pretty tole tray; however, I think this a pretty solution
to something so needed . . . Beauty and function!!!
Have a great day!
And for those who were affected by Winter Storm Juno, I hope you are all well, warm and safe.
Today, I leave those who have snow to wander in, a quote from Chief Seattle, Suquamish 1786-1866
“Take only memories, leaving nothing behind but footprints!”
I will be joining these lovely ladies on Monday, February 2nd for the
Heart and Home Blog Hop!
