Do When? Organizer

By  | 



My daughter saw this organizer in the Urban Outfitters catalog…

and she said to me…”Mom, can you make me one of these?”

Yay!! My daughter thinks I can make cool things!
Boo!! There is no way I am making individual sticky things. Not. going. to. happen.

Hmmm….I don’t want to lose face with my 14 year old daughter.
I must figure something out.

The solution…

wood cheap-o craft plaque
arrow post-it’s from the dollar store
black paint
chalkboard paint




Paint the plaque a coat of black paint and then a coat of chalkboard paint.



Hot glue the arrow post-it’s to the plaque.



Hot glue ribbon for hanging and use chalk to write your When’s…




I am not fooling myself…no fear. I do know that my little crafts won’t be the same
as Urban Outfitters to my 14 year old. But…she liked it. And is still impressed with
her Mom. I still wear the queen crown in this house.

    What a cool idea… anytime my 14 year old wants to organize something, I’m all over it!
