Get Organized with a Family Command Center

With a growing family, Sarah of My Simple Obsession was in need of a command center to keep track of her family’s numerous appointments and notes. She loved one from Pottery Barn but says, “…no way would I ever pay $500 dollars or even close to that for a command center that I could make myself.  So I did! And for a fraction of that price!!” I just love Sarah’s “Pin it” corkboard tile and how she spruced up her board with fabric rosette thumbtacks and a bunting. So cute!

Teen Memo Board

PB Teen once sold a cute wall organization system that could be customized to suit your young scholar’s needs. It’s no longer available, but would you really have dropped hundreds (no joke… hundreds) on the wall tiles anyway? Judy from DIY by Design created her own by wrapping corkboard tiles in fabric and then inserting them into a frame. Judy’s DIY version is every bit as cute and customizable as PB’s without the cost!

Heather of Fake-It Frugal scored an awesome deal on some corkboards last summer, paying only 75 cents each! They were just your plain old basic corkboards… that is until Heather jazzed them up with fabric, ribbon and beaded trim. We can all use a little more organization in our lives, and it might as well be pretty to boot!
