Kitchen Command Center


Let me just admit it, I have too many pieces of paper floating around in the kitchen.  The drawer next to the refrigerator collects too many papers.  When coupons come in, they go there.  When I find recipe, they go there.  I need a way to organize papers, write down needed items, and post the weekly menu.  I made the dry erase menu a little while ago but I hated that is sat out on the counter.  I'm more of a less is more kind of girl.  So where could I hide all the stuff?  The pantry doors!

I bought a few frames so they would all match.  Using the same chevron background for each, I made a miscellaneous board, a menu board, and a notes board.

For the miscellaneous board, I painted some clothes pins and attached them with hot glue.  Now there's a place for coupons and new recipes I'm trying for the week.


The menu board is just like the last one I made.


The notes board is to write down items needed or other random notes.


I used Command strips to attach them to the pantry doors.  Now no more mess on the counter.



So much better.  I can close the door on this situation!  Ha!  Do you have a command center?

  4. Love how you keep this hidden in the pantry and yet it's so accessible. May have to copy you on this one too!

  5. Very good ideas! I've got the menu board, but like you had, it clutters my counter somewhat. So I think I'll see if I can mount it inside a cupboard door. And I really like the clothespin to hold papers idea!
