So after browsing Pinterest for some really good ideas on organizing, I decide to get busy and create a Command Central for the family. We currently have our cmputer armoire in the corner of the dining room but it wasn't big enough for what I wanted. So I decded to make use of another corner in the dining room that wasn't being used.
I moved in two desks from other parts of the house that weren't really being used. Then started gathering all of the office organization stuff that I had collected over the years. I then created a 4 month wall calendar using a poster frame, scrapbook paper and free printabl calendars.
It was another idea that I found on Pinterest. I of course put my own personal touch on it. And since I wasn't using the clear plastic from the poster frame on the calendar I decided to use it on the desk to put photos under.
The frame on the wall was a gift from my mom that I loved but just never had found a place for. It works great just above the desk displaying our family photos from Christmas.
While searching Pinterest I came across so many really neat signs and sayings about family. I decided to make my own. I found one that I really like and printed it out in poster format on my Kodak printer.I pieced it together and backed it with scrapbooking paper. I then purchased a frame on sale at Michael's and this is what I ended up with.
I grabbed my white board from the kitchen...which I had no idea was magnetic. Found some magnetic label holders that I had purchased at Goodwill for 69 cents. I used them to create daily, weekly and monthly areas of to do lists. I then added a cork board and the Command Center was done.
What I loved most about this project is that since I already had all of the supplies, it only cost me $10. I say that was money well spent.
