The space above these built-in drawers includes a magnetic message board, made by wrapping linen around a sheet of galvanized metal and then framing it. A nearby tray serves as a catchall for watches, keys, and other everyday items.

    I love it, a bulletinboard hidden away, now my snoopy visitors can't see the msgs on my bulletin board, and since my cat likes to play w/stuff on the BB, now I don't have to worry about him eating a thumb tack...Smart Move!!!

    A bulletetin board in the closet?? In the kitchen, of course. The MS
    staff really was out to sea on this one. I agree with those who couldfind
    better uses for such a space it indeed they even had that much space.
    Even luggage storage would be better there. Mykele

    I'm sorry, but this seems like a waste of space to me. I can think of a lot of things I would store in that area. I also agree with Julia ... 'Why do we need a message board in our closet?'

    A metal cookie sheet makes a great alternative. Or get a piece of sheet metal from the hardware store, cover it with fabric

    I would love something like this, but be practical. In thses times e just can't spend the money on this. So how about a little help

    Great idea! If I remember to write it, I can use reminders first thing in the AM! Thanks!

    IF I had closets this big, the next issue would be to get anyone else to use the idea. Sorry but a lot us us are not fortunate enough to live in big houses.

    Is the metal framed to hold the fabric in place? Glue doesn't really adhere to metal does it?
