DIY Brainstorm Board For Your Office

You’ll love this DIY brainstorm board for your home, your office, or for back-to-school! It’s perfect for to-do lists, reminders, or a good old fashioned brainstorming session.

DIY Plexiglass Brainstorm and Note Board

I love writing in all of the notebooks, as we well know, but sometimes I need my notes staring me in the face while I work. I don’t like stuff cluttering up my desk, so I came up with this plexiglass brainstorm board!

It’s been perfect so far — you can pull it down off the wall to jot down ideas, notes, lists, whatever. Then hang it back up and you’ve got all of your notes in front of you but not cramming your desk with piles of junk.

It’s really simple to make (there are only three steps!) and I’m pretty into the colorful addition to the wall, too.

Psst — you can join my VIP group below, and I’ll send more of my coloful and fun ideas straight to ya!

How to Use a Brainstorm Board

I’m calling this a brainstorm board, but in reality you can use it for so many purposes!

If you’re using it as a brainstorm board, keep a dry erase pen nearby and any time you need to think something through with some visual help, jot your ideas down on the board.

You could also use it as a to-do list, which is more in the vein of what’s pictured in the images here. Just hang it over your desk and write out your to-dos for the day, then cross them off as you complete them.

Or make a larger one and use it as a family command center! Keep a dry erase marker, sticky notes, and other supplies nearby. Add your monthly calendar to it and erase it each month to refresh.

How to Make a DIY Plexiglass Brainstorm Board

DIY Plexiglass Brainstorm and Note Board
  1. Leaving the protective covering on your plexiglass, drill a hole in two adjacent corners of the board. Drill the hole close enough to the edges to connect a link from your chain and still clamp the link shut. After holes are drilled, remove the protective covering.
  2. Measure out 18″ of chain and open the link on either end of the 18″ using the pliers.
  3. Insert one open link into each hole on the plexiglass and use the pliers to close the links securely in the holes.

More Ways to Organize

Yesssss! Love this thing. You can write on it with dry erase pen and it wipes right off just like a regular dry erase board.

We’ve been using it to sketch out (super secret) ideas, to make to-do lists for the day, and more. I actually find it really useful for a daily to-do list, so it’s there in front of us and we can cross things off as they get finished.

And for more organization ideas that you can use with family or at the office, try some of these on for size! xoxo

  1. Recruit some friends and hold the plexiglass board up to the wall, planning where you want it placed and using a level to make sure it s straight. When you ve got it just so, mark through the holes onto the wall, so you know where to drill for your standoffs.
