The ubiquitous, utilitarian clipboard. Often spotted in classrooms, board rooms and waiting rooms, its classic but sturdy chipboard and metal clap composition naturally lends itself to well, holding things.

Be it artwork, a calendar or a collection of necklaces, we've rounded up five ways to reimagine this inexpensive office supply staple for the home.

1. Over a desk, a clipboard is perfect for organizing bits of mail, notes and inspiration. From The Pretty Blog.

2. Clipboards are also a great way to display a pretty collection of necklaces. From Design Indulgences.

3.The new (Instagram friendly!) calendars from Artifact Uprising come equipped with their own clipboards for display. $25 from Artifact Uprising.

4. As a part of my January Cure, I used clipboards as an alternative to framing a collection of art prints.

5. A clipboard with a menu affixed works well propped up on a counter top or table, as seen on Martha Stewart.
