I’ve made plenty of design boards in the past, but honestly they’ve always been for clients. For myself, I kind of just gather things in my head. It works well when I am designing a room for my own home, but for the new year, I am getting my business thoughts and ideas more organized. A reminder & guide to help me stay on track!
This simple memo board has been hanging out in a corner in my office for months now because I have little to no wall space left in here! The walls near my desk are completely covered with bookcases making it impossible to hang it anywhere.
Then I had an idea to hang it on a sliding track in front of the bookshelf. Something like this …
After doing a search for ‘sliding front bookcase’ and ‘Ikea Billy sliding door’ and so on, I realized that there wasn’t anything out there that I could add onto the Billy bookcases in the office already.
So I asked Mr. Handyman for any ideas & as I’m holding the memo board up in front of the cube shelves that he made me several years ago, I realized that I could just have him tack a couple nails in it and hang this baby up.
Much easier install!
The stuff on the shelves behind the bookcase aren’t things I use on a day to day basis so I think it should work fine. I can easily take the bulletin board down when I need to get to the stuff behind it.
I still think my idea for a rod on the top of the Billy bookshelves is a good one! I see it as being a track system that can be installed on the top of the bookcases with something like small wreath hanger hooks on wheels that can be used to slide a bulletin board back and forth.
It’s a blank canvas right now, but I can wait to fill it up with beautiful things in the days and weeks ahead!
