Every year after the holidays end I get the organizing and cleaning bug. This year it came a little early! I’ve had a mini-command center on my kitchen wall, but I never fully set it up nor used the space to it’s fullest potential. My home lacks major storage and since my oldest started Kindergarten this year I find myself creating paper piles everywhere. So I desperately needed to create a functional and updated kitchen command center.
Before (pictured above) I had the minimal on my wall with a calendar and an extra white board for notes & lists, but no storage. For my new command center wall I wanted to add more space to pin notes or reminders, a place to possibly hang up a backpack, and then lots of storage for papers, books, etc…
To get started and give it a refreshed look I painted the wall. I used leftover paint that I previously used on my kitchen island (see more here) in D.E. Sky Glass. The quickest way to do that was with my QuickPainter & PaintStick EZ-Twist from HomeRight.
I prepped the space by spackling all the old nail holes, and taping off the edges. I then used the QuickPainter Pad Edge Painter to cut in the edges, followed by the PaintStick EZ-Twist Paint Roller Applicator to paint the rest of the wall. Both tools are so easy to use and made painting the space a quick process, but more importantly a mess free project.
Once the wall was painted and dry I started taping out my layout. When it comes to gallery wall layouts planning ahead is always so much easier. The only problem with this space was that it was small and I found myself taping and re-taping, so I decided to tape out the size of the wall on my kitchen floor to plan there.
Of course this only works if it’s a small space!
After I finally has my plan, I hung everything up and my new Kitchen command center wall was complete. Here’s the after!
My new kitchen command center wall is way more functional along with being better on the eyes! Before my calendar was too high and I had to always get a chair to write on it, now everything that needs to be within reach, is!
