My inspiration for the idea of a family command center came from three things. 1.The slight irritation I felt when my 1st grader lost his school work in the "school cabinet" for the third time this year, 2.an overwhelming abount of paperwork and tasks I have taken on because I refuse to say "NO" and 3.Shelly Smith over at House of Smith's new find! She posted last week about this magazing rack she got and once I saw it, ideas were flowing about how I could use one and what I would do with it.
See isn't it soooo pretty!!!! I am in LURV!!!
Unfortunatly for me, she doesn't live in Texas and there is NO store in the greater DFW area that sells anything like it (I know because I went to them ALL) So after a few days I decided I would make my own command center tailored to our families specific needs.
And this is what I came up with!
See isn't it pretty!!
I love it and so do my kids and now I can better stay organized!!! WOOO HOOO!!!
So I know you are just dying to know how I did it, so here it is:
scrap book paper (I used 5 diff sheets, 3 for the folders & corkboard, 1 for the name tag and 1 for the name tag border)
1 pkg of corkboard squares
2 pkgs of plastic file folders from The Container Store
Pretty Border Making Scissors
1. cut your paper to fit in the front pouch of the file folder and insert.
