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.

Materials

Make Time: 15 Minutes

Step 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.

Step 2: Measure out 18″ of chain and open the link on either end of the 18″ using the pliers.

Step 3: Insert one open link into each hole on the plexiglass and use the pliers to close the links securely in the holes.

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. Henry caught on and loves to get a hold of it and cross things off too. Happy brainstorming! 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.
