A fully functional DIY Command Center and Gallery Wall for your kitchen to keep you organized and ready for your week. Don’t forget those groceries, what’s for dinner, or what’s coming up this week again.
Happy Friday! I’m excited for the weekend! We don’t have too much planned, but I’m hosting game night on Saturday and on Sunday the Steelers play! It’s also supposed to be in the 60s, which I’m not mad about
Today, though, I wanted to talk about my favorite part of our new kitchen. The kitchen isn’t fully finished, but I think I’ll share pictures next week. It’s very minimal stuff that needs to be finished, and the holidays sort of stopped the “Let’s get it done” mentality. I know it’ll be done soon!
Aaron and I are always saying things to each other on what we need to buy, what needs finished, asking what’s for dinner when my planner is downstairs. We go to the store and we never remember what we need, and we’ve over planned a few too many nights. For this reason, I was ecstatic when we had an entire blank wall above our new kitchen cart that I could make a command center. I searched endlessly on Pinterest for what I wanted, and just couldn’t find it. I didn’t want it to just be an area of lists that would end up looking a mess. I wanted to add in some other aspects to make it into a gallery wall, too! So, I set off on a mission, and after gathering things for about a month, I’m so excited at what it turned into!
DIY Command Center and Gallery Wall for Your Kitchen:
Here is a look at the entire DIY command center and gallery wall for your kitchen! I love walking in and seeing everything so organized. Even my SIL said the other day “I love coming over here and seeing how organized you are.” What a compliment! ha I swear, since we got rid of our “office,” our house has just been so much less cluttered and I love it! But, more about the wall.
I knew I wanted a calendar, a place to hold mail and anything important, and our weekly menu. I also wanted to add in somewhere that we could jot down things we needed that came to our mind, and our endless “to do” lists that are all over our house.
I found this mail holder on Amazon, and it had two slots which was perfect. It also had hooks under so that we could hang keys when we accidentally bring them upstairs.
As I searched endlessly for a menu board and To Do list board, the lovely Kristy posted free printables that were exactly what I wanted. I had frames left over from out office that were just in a closet, so I printed them up and can use dry erase markers on top of them to write on, and simply erase.
I wanted a calendar that was more neutral so that it went with whatever theme I was ending up. I also wanted one that could easily be turned. I found this one at Target.
Once I found the main aspects I was looking for, it was time to make it fun. Aaron and I went to Hobby Lobby and found the Eat sign (I really wanted that!) and the B. I used a frame I had to put a picture of Annabelle because I love it, ha. I also had the plaque and canvas already! My aunt happened to give me the star for Christmas, and our friends made us the “Stay Humble and Kind” sign that I knew I wanted to fit in somehow!
Lastly, I wanted an area that I could put things like pictures or reminders, so I found this memo board from Target that fit in perfectly with everything we had!
I hope this gives you ideas on how to make your kitchen a little more organized and also add some fun decor. Also, big thanks to Kristy for reading my mind and making printables
