Ready Wall.

Last week I found a couple of great pieces for Sissy's room.

We ended up not having enough room for everything so I had to pull some stuff out. This big shelf was the best option to go. My grandad built it so I couldn't let it go. I had been thinking of a way to help keep all of the kids stuff organized and ready to go by the door... that's when it hit me.

I just flipped that bad boy on it's side to make it a bench.

Covered the bottom with fabric, tossed on a few pillows, hung up the kids hooks, and added a few pictures.

Here is what is under the fabric.
Backpacks, shoes, t-ball gear...

This was such a simple and cheap (Free) fix for the kids to keep organized!

Back to School.

When it comes to leaving for school in the morning, having everything ready to go right there at the door is best.

Here is a picture from last year where it was in our hallway. That worked great too!

Absolutely brilliant:) Loved that you could keep the furniture, use it for storage and keep it all hidden away:):)

What a wonderful idea! I wish I had a big enough entry to do this.

That is a fantastic idea. I don't think I would have thought to turn a shelf sideways, but hopefully now I will.:)
