On Saturday I did a post on Back to School Organization . I showed different ideas and shared things I liked and I said I’d be back to show you the ideas I incorporated into my home. Well, I’m back…….. I’m here to show you my Command Center/Homework Station.
1. I found this white board at Goodwill. It was brand new from JoAnn Fabrics. Retail 19.95 that I bought for 1.99. It had a peel able sticker on the edges so I covered it with scrap booking paper and added ric rac and a big orange flower.
2. I bought a piece of metal sheeting at Lowe’s for 6.00. I added orange ric rac to the bottom and took scrap booking embellishments and glued them to magnets. I had some days of the week magnets that I added to the board.
3. Is just a normal cork board that I added ric rac stripes down the right hand side and made fabric flowers and glued to the board.
4. I found these bins at JoAnn fabrics last year. One for each boy. I can use them to put in random paper
I took another piece of sheet metal and added Velcro to the back and attached it to the wall. I gathered things that we consistently need for homework and added either Velcro or magnets to them as well as using round silver magnetic hooks which I spray painted orange, green and two shades of blue. I have index boxes in the small blue box. I also have colored pencil in the fun chevron case. Now, I think I have every thing I need handy and accessible for the boys to use. I just hope we can keep everything in their new home!!
