Small Family Command Center Wall

With all of this extra time at home, I’ve been trying to get more organized. One thing that needed an update was our garage entryway. I had planned to create a family command center wall in this hallway after I finished the laundry room and mudroom makeover, but I got distracted by other commitments and never followed through.

doors to the garage and coat closet

Here’s how it looked before. The door straight ahead leads to the garage, and the door to the right is a coat closet. We put umbrellas in the wicker plant stand by the door.

I have a demilune table with a dish for keys and a plant. Next to the table is the door to the laundry / mudroom. Pretty blah, huh? This is the view from the kitchen.

I bought this metal magnetic chalkboard / sorter at The Christmas Tree Shop several years ago. While I liked it at first, it’s all wrong for this space. The only thing I use it for now is to write down grocery items. I knew that I wanted a calendar. I still wanted a place to jot down grocery items, but not chalkboard this time as it was too messy.

I found this dry erase calendar on Amazon. I love that it has a section to write down notes (groceries), there’s some cork board at the bottom, and it’s magnetic. It was also just the right size for my small family command center wall.

I wanted a place to put outgoing mail, so I gave this dated thrift store box a makeover with chalk paint. You can check out the transformation HERE. I recently organized our junk drawer, and now stamps and envelopes are stored in there.

The keys are in a cool vintage pewter pedestal bowl.

With the functionality taken care of, it was time to make the entry look stylish! I wanted my family command center wall to resemble a gallery wall. I added artwork and plates to create interest.

I so love my vintage prints, plates and frames!

This plaid rag wreath that I made didn’t sell at my antique booth, so I put it on the laundry / mudroom door.

My hand crafted Home Sweet Home sign also made it way back home from the booth. I hung it above the door to the kitchen.

I’m so happy to now have a functional and stylish family command center and entryway. It was worth the wait 🙂

Until next time!
