Recycled Message Board

This will keep your whole family organized! Using recycled materials, you can create a beautiful message board to display in your entry way.


Approximate Time: About an hour


  • recycled cork board
  • recycled shelf
  • spray paint
  • fabric
  • decorative pins
  • butter knife


  1. Spray paint the entire cork board and shelf the same color (you might want to remove any hooks first). Let dry.
  2. To add visual interest, add some fabric along the bottom half of the message board. To do this, simply use a butter knife and slowly work the fabric into the frame of the cork board. Fold over the top part of the fabric as you slide in the sides. Use decorative pins to hold the fabric in place along the cork.
  3. Attach the cork board and shelf to the wall right next to each other so it looks like one big piece.
  4. Presto! Add a calendar or other important papers. If your shelf has hooks, it's a perfect place to hang keys or other essentials.
