our family command center


today, i thought i’d share our family command center with you.

it’s constantly changing to fit our increasingly busy lives, but here’s what it looks like now.


it’s in the entryway of our house, near our front door.

and, it gets a ton of use. more than i ever thought it would.


the chalk board wall is below and the kids love it!


on the far left are pocket organizers from target.


on the pocket organizers i put a few yellow metal buckets to hold chalk and magnets. $1.oo each!


i also have orange binder clips to hold gift cards, coupons and receipts.


on the very top i store magazines and library books.

i love these pockets. they’re really useful!


to the right of those is a simple cork board i found at the goodwill years ago.

and, under that is a dry erase calendar with schedules on it.

it’s mostly just for my 4 year old , though.


next to the calendar is our “what’s up weekly board.”

we got the idea here. my son loves it!


he has so much fun moving the picture magnets.

it has really helped him learn his days of the week.

and, he loves to move the star, too!


and finally, more cork boards for pictures, art projects, notes and more.

i took 2 old canvases and put a thin layer of cork on top.

then i very simply (and sloppily) hot glued a nice thick fabric all the way around the edges while pulling it tight.

that’s it. easy peasy and pretty.

like i said before, our family command center is always changing and i’m sure i’ll add more to it soon.

stayed tuned! : )
