Let’s face it- life can get a little disorganized sometimes. Especially around the house, where dirty dishes, neglected chores, and occasional laziness can get out of hand. It can be difficult for an entire family to stay organized together and communicate on the same level throughout the day. Fortunately, we have the solution! These eight message centers will allow your whole fam to function as a cohesive unit, which will leave more time for quality family time.

Here is another repurposed message center. Utilizing an old window is a great idea and chalkboards are perfect for keeping track of essential to-dos and menus.
With these ideas, you are well prepared to create a beautiful and functional command center for your home. We implemented one in our home and I’m not sure how we ever got by without one.
