Getting Creative with Pin Boards - 10 Beautiful Ideas

Currently I am working on a school command center in my kitchen for the upcoming school year. You know a place where the kids can organize and keep organized their school papers, homework, notes from the teacher and so on. Well one of the items I really need to help organized and communicate with Mr. Rosemary Lane is some sort of pin board. And since I am on a low budget now with getting my camera fixed and purchasing a new pocket camera to fill in while my poor Cannon Rebel is in the shop, I am going to need to create my own pin board from materials I already own. Thankfully I never tossed out the beat up cork board I use to have in the kid's playroom, so it is going to have to be the jumping off point for my new board. But I want something functional yet pretty so I decided to surf the net for some decorative pin board ideas. I was looking for DIY boards but did find a few being sold, and I have to say that I was surprised to see the price tags on some of those boards.

Anyhow here is what I found...

What I really like are the boards covered with fabric. This is an incredibly easy way to create a pin board to totally coordinate with a room's decor! 

So with the help of my hubster...he cut the wood...I am in the process of creating my own custom pin board. The plan is to have it ready to roll before the first day of school...that being September 4th for my kiddies!

That's all for now.
Have a great day!!!
