Kids Command Center – Pottery Barn Kids Knock-Off

I gave you a peek at this Pottery Barn Kids Stanton Collection knock-off last week when I revealed Isaac’s Black and Green Industrial bedroom makeover.  It is the perfect place to keep track of the school calendar, awards and coupons won from school, some basic school supplies, birthday invites, etc.  We are really trying hard to continue to give Isaac more responsibility when it comes to his knowing his schedule so this seemed like a good step in that direction.

Dorsey Designs and I’m back to share a simple way to personalize your walls for little $$! This past Saturday, I went to Goodwill and found these framed paintings for only $5 each. Readily available at thrift stores, they are perfect to transform and make your own! Since mine had a sturdy wood back, I decided to make a pair of chalk boards for my entry.
