Wall Organizer With A Pinch Of Sassification...


I bought this...uh...functional wall organizer in an effort to help my husband and I (read: ME) become more organized and enhance mail communication.

It has sat in the fish-tank room for just over a year now. (Yes, we have a room in our house whose sole purpose is to access the fish tank...and apparently to house forgotten functional wall organizers.)

Anywho.

Bubbalu found it, forgotten and neglected, a few weeks ago and kindly Bubbalized it for me:



Meaning he scribbled all over the thing with the dry erase marker.

Did you know dry erase markers don't erase from cork board?

Didjya know dry erase markers don't erase from the fabricy middle thingy that I'm not sure what it's called?



And ALSO, did you know dry erase markers don't erase if they are left on the dry erase board for oh...365+ days?

Who knew?

Well, I do NOW, obviously.

So, I found it hiding in the lovely smelling fish-tank room and decided it needed a revamp. A little sassification, if you will.

Deconstruct.

Prime and spray paint frame.

Recover cork board, fabricy middle thingy that I'm not sure what it's called and dry erase board...which also happens to be magnetic. Handy!

Put it all back together again and marvel at all the sassification going on:



Now I have a handy dandy sassified wall organizer for my craft room to help me, I GUESS, organize my ideas a bit. I have occasionally been known to be slightly scatterbrained...hopefully this will help.

  7. So can I ask where you bought it originally? I was looking on-line for something like this today. The PB ones are awesome - but unfortunately won't fit in the space I need it for.

    Thanks!

  11. That looks fabulous! I must confess, I have something like that too. I think it still has a to do list for our wedding - almost 3 years ago! I think I should break her out and put her to good use again. I don't think my dry erase part is magnetic though... but I do have magnet paint in my basement ::gears turn:: hmmmm.... :)

  12. You have me reconsidering our "framed" organizers... which I'm not exactly using anyway. :) Maybe I'll bust out the spray paint today.
