I’ve always wanted a centralized location in our house for our schedule, mail, and anything I want to be organized together. I’ve never had this before, and we’ve just stuck things up on the refrigerator. But no longer… As soon as we moved in this house, I picked the spot I thought would be perfect for the “Command Center”. We just picked a size that we liked because I knew I wanted to pocket folders to hold our mail and then some clipboards to hold schedules and stuff, so we taped it off so I could paint.
After a shopping trip, we decided to buy two plain clipboards and spray paint since I couldn’t find anything in the color I wanted. I also found a picture frame in almost the exact size that we had taped off, so I grabbed that and the pocket folders I wanted for the wall.
Chyna and I wrapped the clipboards with random pieces of tape and spray painted them. I LOVE them, and really hated to cover them with paper when they were done.
I painted the wall black. I was so scared about the first bit of paint to be put on the walls in our new house being black, but I knew the look I wanted, so I just went for it! It took two coats, but it turned out great!
I took the glass and everything out of the wood frame and after much leveling and measuring, Ron hung it on the wall for me.
Then it was just a matter of placing the things I wanted in the command center. We used those 3M Velcro-like sticky backs to put everything on the wall. I could not love it more! My first decorating project in my house turned out to be successful!! Now, what’s next?
Oh… I got a fall centerpiece and runner for my dining room table. I LOVE how it turned out also!
