I recently purchased Martha Stewart’s Wall Manager system in white.  I bought the:
-cork board (now they have a dry erase board)
-the accessory board
-a shelf piece
-a letter caddy
small caddy
It seemed the hubs and I were always putting mail in different spots, I was losing my sunglasses on a daily basis and was on the hunt for a spot to corral an on the go scarf.  So I was extremely excited for this Martha Stewart wall manager, but as my mother ALWAYS says, I just needed to “jazz it up a bit”.   So today I am sharing my updated Wall Message Center.

I’ve got to say, if you are even a “wanna be organizer”, these products are totally cool.  As if Martha doesn’t rock at everything, she has “organized” covered.  There are a million pieces and parts you can buy to customize to your exact needs.
A while ago I had bought this fish scale patterned stencil and was on the look for a time to use it.  It worked out to almost perfectly fit.
 Message Center cork,

After the paint had dried, I put gold thumbtacks around the perimeter for a little shimmery finish.

I also added some gold and aqua washi tape to the accessory board.  Again, I go to the washi tape.  I can’t help it though… it’s just such a wonderful choice if you want some color temporarily and don’t want to permanently alter something.

Using my Silhouette printer, I also made graphic labels for the mail and our sunglasses.  How fun are they?!

Message Center organize,
Message Center drop off,
This little project has brought just a touch of color to a very dull corner of our home, it’s organized items we use on a daily basis and I’m so glad I finally did it.
Wall Message Center,
Have you reworked something in your home to make it more you?  What about organizing?

  1. This is so great, I need to make us something like this to tame the piles of stuff everywhere. I especially love the graphics you made, the glasses & envelope.
    I do love Martha and all her amazing ideas – though surely even she must have a little messy cupboard somewhere that she just flings things into and shuts the door quick!

  2. Looks fantastic!! Love the gold thumbtacks around the edge!! I’m pinning this one to our board! Thanks for sharing on DIY Sunday Showcase.


  3. First of all: can I say that your blog is just so fresh & lovely!? Fabulous! I have a similar format, and I love the ways yours looks!! Awesome!

    But this message center is just darling! You make me want to work on one myself! I love it, and it caught my eye at the “I Should be Mopping the Floor” party–I had to stop by!

    I would love it if you stopped by our Facebook page, and said “hello!”

    Your fan,
