Star Wars Family Command Center

I made this Star Wars family command center using an old dry erase board I had. The only thing I purchased were the small frames from a dollar stores. The quote on the board and the planet magnet graphics are a free download on my site. (pdf and silhouette version.) This was a fun project!
Large dry erase board
Chalkboard Contact Paper
Chalk holder
Silver Spray Paint
1 Wood Rounds (for magnets)
Magnets for back of wood.
Cup hooks (for keys)
Small cheap frames, one per family member.
Mod Podge (for planet magnets)
Box to use for container. (used a small long shipping box)
Downloadable planets and quote (on my site)
This was the old dry erase board I had.
I covered the center with paper and spray painted the frame silver.
I used chalkboard contact paper to cover the bottom half of the board.
I bought four small frames from the dollar store for each family member to place on the top dry erase area which is for notes.
I wanted a container of some type on the bottom. I could have made this from a variety of things but I had a small long shipping box that was perfect. I covered it with the chalkboard contact paper and glued it on.
My dry erase board was also magnetic so I decided to make some Star Wars planet magnets using wood rounds.
The planet graphics are a free download on my site post. I use Mod Podge to glue them onto the wood rounds.
I wanted to utilize a lightsaber somehow. I found an old chalk holder I'd had for years and it already looked like one. I spray painted it and drew on some lights and lines to complete the look.
I attached cup hooks on each side (I painted them silver first.) to hold keys. The quote you see is a free download on my site post. Though you can easily make your own.
Here is a breakdown of the board. This project had LOTS of photos and details. Many more are shown on my site below.
