I am super excited to show you my new command center. I guess having a command center means my life will be totally organized and run smooth now!!……
I wasn’t sure exactly what color scheme I wanted to use before I began this project. As it progressed though, I ended up using a lot of black and gold. I think I might add a couple more decor pieces that are a lighter color to brighten it up a bit.
For now though, it works great!BeforeI get started on showing you the after let me show you the before. It wasn’t terrible per se, it was just a blank ugly wall.
Ok! Now that you have seen the before let me show you around my new command center!
The chalk board on the right will be a tutorial coming soon, it is my Dustless Chalkboard. I wanted to add a little embellishment to the chalkboard. I ended up going with this black crow. I cut the crow out of black vinyl using my Silhouette Cameo.
The three magazine holders on the bottom left are from Walmart. I used some masking tape to tape off stripes and then spray painted the stripes gold. I tapped off two of them the same. Then for the third one I tapped it off opposite. This way it would make the checker pattern. I think it really adds intrigue to the area.
The little tin can that has my favorite paint brush in it used to look all summery with flips flops on it, you can head over here to see that transformation.
I basically painted it and used some embellishment to help it bleed well with the theme here.
The three half painted gold jars are actually trail mix jars that I got from Target.
I love these jars because they are thick sturdy plastic. I removed the labels ( which alway is sort of a pain, got any tips….?) and used masking tape to mark off the bottom of the jar. I then spray painted the tops, including the lids, gold. These jars are seriously so sturdy. I bet they will be hanging around for quite a while!!
Well I guess that is it!! I am super in love with this new area of our home. It has been really great to actually have a place to work and have my stuff. The kitchen table was getting a little bit tired of me taking over all the time!!
How do you organize your paper stuff? I would love chat in the comment below!
