I like it when I can use what I already own to make something I need. In this case, I have very little wall space and I wanted to have a chart of projects to keep me on track.
I tried using a marker board on the door a long time ago with different headings for the projects. Hard to see in this picture, but you get the idea.
- In my face visible
- Flexible for categories/tasks
- I would have to erase and rewrite when something moved to the next section
- Sometimes that meant other things were erased as well (by mistake)
- Space in a particular area would get full which meant it would all have to be rewritten (downside of this type of “flexible”
- The space behind the door was remodeled for my long arm and the door was removed (marker boards disappeared with door)
Inside my long arm room are a set of double doors going into the storage/tornado shelter. Blank wall space!
- Bring in some vinyl fabric (not sure why I bought it or when but I’m glad for it now)
- Velcro command strips
- Post-it notes
And this is what you get……
Now to fine tune the set-up.
I used the tape to tape down the edges of the vinyl on the door. It didn’t work.
I found this duck tape and thought it had the perfect color and design. I also bought smaller post-notes. As you can see in the above photo I was running out of space and I thought of more categories to add to the board. It is pretty sad that I have “to have” a “pictures” and “post” section, but I have made, finished and put away/given quilts without taking pictures or posting about it.
I printed the categories on scrap-booking paper, laminated them and cut. I’m using clear removable mounting strips to put them on the vinyl. I can move or remove them as desired, which is helpful in keeping this flexible.
Now the key is to use it! Do you have a system to track your projects?
