My Workspace + DIY Post-It Board

Sunday

I made an easy and affordable DIY Post-it board for my new workspace. Since we just moved here last month, I only now got a chance to organize and clean this area. This is something that I’ve been excited to do. The area serves as my quiet place to unwind when all the boys are napping. I put less stuff on the shelf so it doesn’t look cluttered. On it, you can find a couple of frames, the Bible, and a gift from a friend. I decided to add a couple of items to my workspace that are inspired by my home country: the Philippines. These items include a Philippine flag and a Bingo container, which my siblings, cousins, and I played with when we were young. If you have noticed, the DIY leaf painting on the wall has been moved a couple of times.  You may have previously seen it in the bathroom or master bedroom. I think this painting will stay awhile in my work station, since it symbolizes my blog’s logo. I love how the Post-It board helps me with important reminders, so I don’t forget about things. Even though I have my own planner, I always find it easy to remember things if I write them down on a Post-It and stick it up somewhere. If you’d like to create this kind of Post-It board, here are the materials and steps. So easy!

  • Cardboard frame (less than $2 from IKEA)
  • Twine
  • Glue stick and glue gun
  • Scissor
  • standard paper

Start by gluing the twine in layers around the cardboard frame. I ended up with about 4 layers of twine. When you get to that layer, simply cut the excess twine off.Once you’ve done this, you can cut out more pieces of twine and glue them to the corners to make corners for the frame. Then, use a piece of standard white paper (or any type of design that you’d like to use) as the frame’s background. That’s it! You have a simple, easy, and affordable Post-It board. You can also use a dry erase marker if you’d like to write directly on the board instead of using Post-Its. You could also use both ways!

Do you find it more effective to put your reminders on Post-Its, in a planner, or a cellphone calendar?
