Kitchen Command Center

Over the weekend I decided to get organized. First thing on my list? Set up a little Kitchen Command Center in one of our kitchen cabinets.

I was actually quite surprised that this only took me about 20 minutes to put together and cost me less than $13 in new supplies to create. Yep, that makes me one happy, organized mamma.

    Cute and functional. Always the best. I need to do this in my office. I’m pretty sure the husband wouldn’t play along and things would still be thrown all over the desk. A girl can dream though, right?

    This is such a great idea! I love that you can close the cabinet door and it is completely hidden. We just did a kitchen command center on a chalkboard wall, and I don’t know how I lived without one for so long. It’s great to feel more organized.

    I love that you’ve put it inside the cabinet so it can be hidden. Do you find that the hooks get in your way when you’re trying to access things in the cabinet? I really need something like this. Thanks for sharing!

    Loving this! I’m on a mission for kitchen organization and this fits right in. Question: How did you adhere the hooks? With double-sided tape, too?
