Every year, when back-to-school time comes around, I know it’s time to start organizing our schedules. To make that easier I have a big bulletin board where I put notes, sports schedules, and other important items. Unfortunately it’s just a big, plain board in a corner of the laundry room. This year I decided that I would jazz it up a bit, so I started searching for ideas. Here are 15 fabulous cork board transformations that I found.
