Guest Picks: Message Boards to Organize Your Kitchen for Back to School
Chalkboards may seem a thing of the past, but there's something rustic and pleasing about them. This one is great because it's sectioned off. You can have a grocery list in one, kids' homework in another and a to-do list in still another, with room to spare!
Bulletin boards give the opportunity to move papers (kids' drawings, notes, etc.) off the fridge and onto an organized wall space. I love that this one is made with sea grass rather than the traditional cork.
This multipurpose wall rack would work great in the kitchen for everything from pinning up recipes to writing notes to holding backpacks or lunch bags.
If you don't already love menu planning, maybe this great menu board will help jump-start things.
This great shabby chic magnetic chalkboard is an Etsy find. I love the weathered frame and the buttons-turned-magnets (which may not come with the board, but they're a cute idea anyway!).
This great magnetic chalkboard comes with a clock built in — perfect for the kitchen.
Without a frame, several of these corkboards can be used together to create a neat display on the wall. Choose your own configuration: four to a square, a horizontal straight line, even a vertical one.
This is for those that don't want to create their own message and would prefer to make a statement.
Create a "system" with these separate pieces: corkboard, whiteboard, calendar and chalkboard.
With a cork background and shelves, this could easily host messages, as well as handle a small cup with pens and notepads.
Go green with a whiteboard calendar. It's reusable year after year.
A linen pin board can be a great way to display notes, photos, recipes, etc. The linen on this one is so pretty.
If a pin board with a more industrial look is what you're after, this is it.
No pins or magnets necessary! Just slip your notes under the ribbon, and you're good to go.
This simple and understated board would look good against a steel blue wall.
The mahogany frame around this simple whiteboard would be perfectly understated for the kitchen wall.
This over-the-door magnetic message holder would work perfectly on a pantry door.
A magnetic whiteboard in the middle and cork around the edges makes this great for written and pinned messages alike.
This magnetic board is slightly industrial, yet not too modern for a "regular" kitchen space. I love it as a cork alternative.
Hang this cheese board on the wall as a clever message board!Next: Get Up to Speed for Back to School — 12 Tips for Smooth Sailing
