Family Command Center

We love our family command center!  It's been our organizational haven and overall family life saver for the last four years.  Unfortunately, the original shelving unit has been discontinued and many of you asked how to still recreate it.  Luckily there's plenty of options out there, including this, this and this (at $28 bucks it's a steel!).  I'm currently loving this one, its smaller size would fit our current needs perfectly.  I'd stick to the same setup, 3 individual units, pushed together, with one turned sideways (we just painted on that chalkboard)!  And if you're looking for more storage, this unit would be a great option!  Be sure to measure your space to ensure you're getting the best unit to maximize your storage.

What makes this unit great is the versatility in how you can both style and use it.  For storage, we love to mix materials (like these lidded baskets and these magazine files).  Add a neutral tone for a little color (like this).  And trust me when I say you can't have enough baskets and bins to store and organize.  I'm liking the classic look of these, these and these.

For papers and files, I love the practicality of magazine holders.  Everything fits nice and neat! I'm currently liking this, this and this.  With this option being a budget friendly price point.

To tie it all together, pull in some fun accessories and personal pieces.  These white vases create a simple, yet dramatic statement.  And we currently have these in almost every room of our house!  They're so practical, organizing all our odds and ends, and after 6 years still look and act like new!
