I can be impatient. Once I get going on an idea I just have get stuck into there and then...well...not always, but most of the time! In the very wee hours of the yesterday morning I came across a 'command centre' in a hallway where everything had it's place and it was conveniently located close to an entrance. I wanted one. I almost started clearing space then and there! I measured, listed pieces I might need to create one and when daylight broke today I got started.
This is what was here before. A part of our home I enjoyed, but it wasn't functional.
This is how it looks now.
I wanted to buy an Ikea Expedit piece, baskets to fit etc, but I managed to use items from around the house to make it work. It doesn't look as pretty as my old sewing display, but it feels like it will be very functional and I really like the idea of having everything in one convenient place. The baskets at the top hold my handbag, shopping bags and one for Little Eco parcels to be sent to customers. There is a shelf for shoes (mostly school shoes) and underneath is space for the nappy bag and the kids school bags. I hung a noticeboard above it and plan to only attach school and kids things that need attention.
This is set up at our front entrance which we rarely use, but as there was no space to create something similar at the back door it had to be the front. I imagine I will change this around a bit as time passes and commitments change, but for now it is just good having everything in one space.
Do you have a similar space dedicated to keeping your family organised?
