    I love these command centers. I just always feel like I don’t have the space to set one up and I don’t know how to pair everything together. One day maybe I can hire an interior designer. lol

      Hi Casey, I think you should try and don’t wait for that “one day”! You can start with copying someone’s project and adjust it when you feel more confident!
