If you want to make an even easier memo board, then today is your day!!
See it in behind my computer? Took 3 minutes!!
This is what it's made from...a ceiling tile. It's 2 feet by 2 feet in size.
The one I purchased is an Armstrong ceiling tile ( I have no affiliation with them)
Here is a quote from their site on what the ceiling tiles are made from...
What are Armstrong ceilings made of?
Armstrong mineral board ceilings are made of mineral fiber and can include up to 82% recycled content. Armstrong also offers high performance engineered resin, rigid PVC, and durable laminate plank ceilings made from wood fiber byproducts.
You can purchase one or a bunch!! $3.87 each...cheap, cheap
You can paint them too.
I started to paint within the lines to be detailed with this design, but wow did it look like a 2 year old painted it. Lol
So I painted the whole thing...quick and easy!
I added a ribbon to hang it, but you can just add picture hooks on the back if you don't want the ribbon.
Great for design inspiration, family organizing (one board for each family member), appointments, photos etc
The next thing I tried was to cover it with burlap...you can use any fabric though.
I used a staple gun...
Took 3 minutes to do this!!
I think I needed to iron this more lol
but little notes and pictures covered the wrinkles anyway.
I just placed it behind the computer for quick reference, but I think I need more ceiling tiles though, to make another collage type memo board system.
More pictures to come when I put the wall together!!
I know where you're going now...to the hardware store, right??
Have a great day,
Great idea!!! My daughter has quadruplets so this would be an easy way to dr visits, instructions , etc in convenient place! Thanks!ReplyDelete
I really really really want something like this so I can put inspiration pictures and stuff on it, but then I realize that printing out everything that I would want on it would cost too much. I want it where I will see it every day though, instead of pinterest which I see only if I go on it!ReplyDelete
Hi, You really have such brilliant innovative ideas!!! Would never have thought of something like that!!!ReplyDelete
I am going to do this one right away! I am in the midst of packing my house for move to our new home, but I REALLY need this one (or four one for each member of the family plus a general one for the kitchen alone!) I LOVE THIS!!! I will pick these up when I go to get paint swatches!ReplyDelete
Sweet, neat and quick too! Great idea! Thanks for sharing Karen!ReplyDelete
It's funny you should be using a ceiling tile for your project today, as we just used one for my son's science project recently too! They are lightweight but sturdy, and so cheap that if they happen not to come home again, it's not like I've lost my very favorite piece of cut wood. We just covered ours with white paper and he drew the planet orbits on it and used some funky swirly orange/yellow/blue paper for the sun and then glued on his clay planets. It's easy to carry because it's only 2 feet square and not very heavy.ReplyDelete
I love your burlap covered memo board...so much potential with that idea!
I have used 4 tiles that nest together (tongue and groove style) in my sewing room for several years. Yes, they are wonderful - inexpensive, lightweight, easy to work with. Thank you for posting this Karen. Your TTT ideas are now making me "think outside the box" when I have organizational needs.ReplyDelete
How simple is that and it comes out so nice! Thanks for sharing this with us. :)ReplyDelete

I just love your tool time Tuesday, you have such great, timesaving, and money saving ideas. Thank you.ReplyDelete
Neat idea! I have a bunch of ceiling tile in the attic that could be used for that :)ReplyDelete
I love your "Ceiling Tile Memo Board", This is a cool idea, thanks for sharing with us how you have created this project!!!! Another thing that I have to do..thanks for the inspiration!ReplyDelete
Great idea! I think I will add this to some of my homemade Birthday & Christmas gifts.ReplyDelete
Great idea! I want to try this. Thank you!ReplyDelete
Wonderful! I was scrolling down till having last picture I couldn't what's exactly is gonna be. I think I can get other beautiful clothes to cover it.ReplyDelete
