Working on making this command center in my kitchen right now. Bought the mail holder today at Goodwill for $3.93 spray painted it black. Had an all white dry erase board I cover and spray painted the trim black. Already had a big wooden E I purchased at Goodwill a while back for $1.91. Have black frames already...just need the wire baskets and a big desk calender and we'll be set for business!
