My recently bought our first home and we have been working our little tushies off to make it perfect for just the two of us.

The next task to check off our "never ending Check list" is making a command center.

I am looking for some suggestions on how to make one with such a little space. The first picture is a picture of the space I want to have the command center. I am able to remove the telephone cord box. But I am not able to move the doorbell.

I am am open to any and all suggestion!!!
Thank You!!!

I also found this Lovelt rusty old bucket thing from a farmer market. I don't have to use this in my command cente. But I love the farmhouse style. So I thought I would post a picture of it!

    Hi Brianna, Here's an idea, make a large wood frame, use the top portion for notes by painting it with chalk board paint. Then arrange your command center items on the frame. Find or make something to hang your keys on and an old milk can or old tall farm basket to put umbrellas in, or even a small table to set your bag on!

    What ever you decide to do, have fun!!

      I'm making $85 an hour working from home. I was shocked when my neighbour told me she was averaging $120 but I see how it works now. I feel so much freedom now that I'm my own boss. Go this site and start your work.. Good luck... http://ow.ly/qC4330fFBWo

    Hi Brianna, Here's an idea I put together for you real quick on paint. Make or find a large barnwood/wood frame. Make the top area for notes using chalkboard paint. Arrange your command center items in the frame. Find or make something to hang your keys and use something in like an old milk can for umbrella's.

    what ever you decide to do, have fun!

    There are GREAT suggestions over on Pinterest - it just depends on what types of items you need most.

    Consider leaving the phone box there, and finding a nice, small phone that will fit there. Then you can place the other baskets, bulletin boards, etc., around it.
