We could all use help with home organization from time to time. I speak from experience, with a family of 7! But whether you're a family of 7 or a powerhouse of 1, having a central command center in your home to keep all of your papers organized is a smart move. It could be based in your kitchen or foyer area, even in your office - the important element of a command center is that it gives you the option to organize and take or leave notes, all while still looking aesthetically pleasing (especially if it's in a central part of the house).
There are so many great ideas for command centers and memo boards now. Bulletin boards don't just have to be made of cork anymore! They can be metal or chicken wire or chalk-painted surfaces. You can paint traditional cork boards or cover them in fabric. You can frame them or cut them into fun shapes that can double as wall art! Really, the possibilities are endless.
We've put together a round-up of some of our favorite memo board ideas, along with some inspiration for push pins and clothespins to customize your home's ultimate command center!
I love the whimsy of this cloud memo board!
Why go out and purchase cork if you have some already handy? I love this bulletin board DIY using wine bottle corks!
Memo board doesn't always necessarily denote “cork”. I love this wire memo board, made out of an old frame, using clothespins to display photos and notes!
If you're going to use clothespins at your command station, why not add a little pizazz and make them sparkle! Love this tutorial using ModPodge and glitter.
If glitter isn't your thing, and you'd rather stick with traditional push pins at your command station, try using a dot of glue to attach a pom pom to the end of the push pin!
