Our Family Command Station

I have rearranged and redone our laundry room a few times. I'm hoping that I finally have found a perfect set up for it.  After being on pintrest and seeing command stations I got inspired yet again.
This was what I originally started with it.
Another picture of the 1st set up.
I later painted the brown shelf white, and it really cleaned up the area.
I liked this set-up for a while, that is until pintrest intervened.
This is our new set-up/family command station.
I wanted the area to have more of a purpose and not be so cluttered. The two hooks hold things needed on a weekly basis; 1. coupons  2. business cards. The calendar is our monthly calendar, it holds birthdays, holidays, anniversaries and other important dates that I don't need to forget.
I had three old frames that were silver, I painted them white and gave each of them a new purpose. This one holds our newest family pictures collage. I had to have pictures of my daily inspiration in life up in my command babes!
This is a cork board I purchased at Hobby Lobby, 1/2 off of course, I think it was $3. I painted it and used the decorative nails that I purchased at Lowes for another project. The nails actually are holding it in place in the wall. I use it for notes I need for the week, family pictures, or things I'm proud of (our Color Run numbers)!
This is our weekly calendar, it holds our weekly list of to-do's. This is another one of the old frames I repurposed. I printed a weekly calendar off of pintrest and put it in the frame as a picture.  I use a dry erase marker to write in our weekly schedule.
The black shelf on the right was purchased at Hobby Lobby for $22, 1/2 off also. The two slots help keep me organized with our bills. The top slot is for bills to be filed, the bottom slot is for bills to pay.  
The hanging baskets on the desk were given to me by my Aunt Nancy. I love it and have been dying to figure out how to put it in this station. In it I store my "let's get organized binder", my "favorite recipe binder", scissors, pens, and other misc. I love that I still have some room to add other things if I so feel the need later on.

This is exactly what I wanted in here. I had been collecting and pinning stuff since before Christmas. It isn't that I didn't have the time, it was that I couldn't figure out exactly how I wanted everything organized. I'm glad I waited, saved some holes in the wall, and did this as cheap as I could . The whole thing cost me $25.  Maybe this has inspired you, or provoked you to share your family command station.
