A “To Do” List

Posted: February 2nd, 2009 | Author: Katie | Filed under: Simple Solutions |

So my husband has really tried to get me onboard with using all the latest technology and now I can put my grocery list on my phone (GroceryIQ for the iPhone), I can find out whose sings any song on the radio by putting my phone in the air (Shazam), but there is one thing that I like to do the old fashion way and that is writing “to do” lists. So I wanted to make my to do list and it had to be:

1. Cute

2. Off the counter

First find, buy or paint a picture frame that you are not using that matches the room that you see often (and close to where you usually throw your “to do’s list” or the such.) Mine ended up being on a small portion of the wall in my kitchen. I painted the glass with a black interior paint color (or whatever color that blends well with your wall color.) Spray some polyurethane on top then you can find some little letters, scrapbooking letters, etc. and label it on the top.

I found some fun post it notes in the dollar bins at Target and adhered the pad to the frame with a piece of packing tape and voila!

To Do List After

Lets Review:

off the counter — check

Cheap — check

Functional — check

Cute — check, check!
