Home Organization Command Center for $9 #30dayflip Organization
I have 3 young boys, so we have endless projects, schedules and to-dos! So we were in desperate need of a command center, but on a budget! Our hot mess of a corner got a much needed facelift and on a HUGE budget! This is the end result. The shelf is a pallet (free) cut to make a shelf, I added another piece of board from the pallet (cut to fit) the bottom so items wouldn't fall through. I stained it with my homemade vinegar/steel wool mix for an weathered look :)
This is the before of the hot mess corner!
The chalkboard/ calendar was purchased at Michaels with a 50%off coupon so it was only $7 but very PLAIN!
So I stained it with my vinegar /steel wool stain to give it an aged look. I added a fun print fabric, $1, i bought this sweet love sign for $1, also stained with my mix, and used some stencils to write a thoughtful saying (because my handwriting isn't so pretty ) lol. I love the way it turned out!!

The after..... I stained it with the vinegar mix and then stenciled a meaningful saying, just to remind us, of the best way to spend our time :)
So for $9, some creativity and a little time, I was able to create the perfect command station for our family!
