Frank's Projects

Organizational Wall (Family Command Center)
Keep your family life running smoothly with a “Command Center"     Designate one area of the home  - preferably a place that everyone passes through often, such as an entryway, mudroom, corner in the kitchen, etc.
A well-organized and accessorized wall is key.  Keep things streamlined – think “Less Collage, More Grid System” Use cork boards, dry erase boards, magazine racks, mail holder with hooks.

Work Zone (Planning Desk or Homework Central)
Utilize bright colors to create an inviting, highly functional workspace. Organize your cords with a Poppin Desk Set and Cable Box.

DIY School Supply Center
Repurpose your cake stand into a tower of craft and school accessories

Over-the-Door Storage
A clear over-the-door shoe rack is an ideal way to organize everything from medicine and first-aid supplies to cords and school supplies. Use a label maker to designate a place for everything
