If you have kids then you know how important it is to have a command center. A place where all the things can go, schedules can be posted and artwork be displayed.
For years we bounced between the refrigerator, our phones, a wall calendar, and everything seemed to just pile up on the kitchen island. My wife really wanted to build out a command center but I wanted to wait until I was ready to install a sliding barn door. I figured it would be a great use of the space, to hang all the important stuff on the door. After a year of planning and waiting (all my fault) I finally built this sliding command center.
It was quite easy. Pine board core, screwed together. Oak outer trim frame. And some cheap but nice looking whitewash barn wood. I got an office depot calendar and a 4 pocket storage unit I found at Hobby Lobby. I really like these old rustic clothespins and decided to screw them into the door and it made for a simple way to hang the calendar.
I used some large ring clamps and used jelly jars to mount the two glasses. We can use them for pens, miscellaneous items or even flowers.
