DIY wire mesh memo board


I’ve always fancied one of these wire mesh memo boards.

Now I’ve got two.


I thought you might like to know how we did it

with some mini mesh panelling I found at the hardware store

and some leftover screws and spacers we had.


So you can make one,

… or two,





DIY Wire Mesh Memo Board

1 x Mini Mesh Panel (600 x 900mm)

4 x  Wire Mesh Fasteners

4 x Black Nylon Round Spacers (we used some from our Ikea spare parts box)

But you could try these Screw On Bumper Pack

4 x Screws

(We used these)




Position the mini mesh panel in your desired position.

(we found the studs, for extra strength).


Mark the screw holes with a pencil.

Then attach to the wall.


Slide a mesh fastener onto the panel,

using a spacer at the back, to make the panel sit off the wall,

(we had a few round spacers from our leftover Ikea parts, but you could also try the bumper screws above)

then fix the fasteners to the wall with screws.

(we had some spares in our tool kit, use the screws that are correct for your wall surface)


Repeat for the other 3 sides.


New wire mesh memo board!

I love this.

So we made two.


I might even paint it one day.



It’s great for organising.

We use this to hang our calendar.


Shopping lists.

Party invites.

Even stray willow.


Yamba Scandi Collection ideas.


I think it looks like a piece of art on the wall.

But the best bit…

The fridge is now clutter free.


Don’t have a handy partner?

Too busy?

But really want one of these wire memo boards,

nab yourself a handyman and put one (or two) of these up with some hooks like I did.



Did I mention Tomfo is 3?

Yesterday actually.

We went live for the first time three years ago.

Thanks for hanging out with me for that long.


You guys rock! x





This time last year we had just arrived in Yamba,

What a difference a year makes.

Or three.

  1. That looks so freakin cool! And happy 3rd birthday! Here’s to many more! Look forward to the exciting things ahead! Xx

  2. This is super cool, potentially random but I think it would look pretty neat in the bathroom! I’ve seen some cool things that are designed to be hung in bathrooms that would look awesome hanging off this.

  4. Happy 3rd Birthday! I admired your mesh board a while back. I’m not sure I have the room at the moment because I tend to fill my walls but will have to remember this post when it is time for a change.

    Wow! 3 years! congratulations on a great achievement!!

  7. Grace says:

    Fabulous! I’m running out of space on our fridge! Especially with the kids starting school this year, so many notes from teachers, party invites and homework reminders. Love how you can hook your sunglasses up too! I always manage to lose mine!

    • Sarah says:

      You said it, so many notes and things to remember, our fridge is not magnetic, which is a good thing, keeps it clean and clutter free.
      This is the best for keeping all those things at hand so you don’t forget those permission slips that seem to be endless at school. Happy weekend lovely x
