After a little rearranging of our living room / dining room / kitchen space, we ended up with a nice little desk area for “family business” and large blank wall above it. I decided to design a custom board to help organize our family schedules, meals and mail. Here’s the basic idea:
I want part of it be cork so I can pin up notes and a monthly calendar. The other part will be a chalk board for our weekly dinner menu. I’m also carving out space to organize our incoming / outgoing mail.
