Kitchen Series - Memo Boards

Another thing I find helpful to have in my kitchen area are memo boards.  I enjoy writing notes of encouragement and messages to my family, as well as displaying photos.  There are so many fun, creative, and inexpensive ways to make memo boards, so I thought I would share a few.  Check out more ideas and photos on my facebook page at: Dippity Dot Creations.

The photo above shows a small wall located in my kitchen/dining room area, in which I enjoy displaying collectibles, photos, and messages.  I came across some silver platters at a local thrift store and brought them home to turn them into memo boards.  The two platters hanging on the wall I used ribbon and hot glue to connect them together and hang them.  I then cut and attached decorative paper to fit inside each of them and made coordinating magnets, so I can easily display photos and notes.  The round platter hanging below the shelves, I used chalkboard paint on the inside and used ribbon to hang it.

This photo shows another platter that I picked up at a thrift store.  It is a nice large platter and was already painted black, so I just added some chalkboard paint in an area on the inside to write messages and added a vinyl saying and chef.

The photos above and below are a couple of memo boards I just recently completed and have for sale.  To check out all of the items available for sale visit my facebook page at: Dippity Dot Creations.

The memo board above is made from a metal platter in a shabby chic design.  The inside is a chalkboard and comes with to magnet fabric flowers.

The photos below are of a painted cutting board that I upcycled into a memo board.  I repainted it, added chalkboard paint to the front, distressed, and added torn fabric to hold the chalk and to hang it.  There are many other fun ways to turn items into memo boards.  Feel free to share any photos of ones you have made or like!
