DIY Kitchen Message Center

As I gave my kitchen a facelift one thing that was important to me was cleaning off my fridge!!! I have an empty wall that I dedicated to 'message center'! I took an old cork board, covered it, screwed precut sheet metal below that, then chalkboard covered board below that. The result... a place for our papers, calendars, magnets... and a nice clean fridge! See post below, the chalkboard post is with the kitchen reveal here...
Kitchen message center, complete with cork, metal, and chalkboard.
Someone was going to throw this out! I painted the frame first, then covered it.
For more about covering a cork board check the blog post here...
Completed cork board... cute!!!
I had precut sheet metal (16x20) that I punched w/ my crop-o-dile, then screwed into the wall.
The bottom is for the chalkboard.
Painted a thin board w/ chalkboard paint.
Predrilled holes, then screwed it right to the wall as well.
