Family Command Center

No matter how organized I try to be, it seems I always work right up to the last minute before craft fairs. This is one thing I finished the day of… I didn’t take time for a real staged photo shoot, but hopefully you can get the idea.


It’s made much like the other Rustic Message Boards that I wrote about here. However, it’s much larger.

The center is a chalkboard…

whole board

One side has a place for keys.


4 pockets can be labelled for whatever… (I would label them for mail: To Pay, To File, To Save, and To Answer) Or they could be used with kids names on it for their things…

note holder

The top “line” can hold notes…or I thought a monthly calendar might be helpful too.


I made it with an entryway in mind, but it would also work above a desk.

I didn’t really have a place to display this at this past craft fair, but I’ll be taking it with me this Saturday.
