I cant believe this is my first time participating in a WFMW i read the all the time have intentions of doing it but just never do. so this week is the week to jump in. When we first bought this house 8 months ago i knew i wanted a "command" center. a place where we could put backpacks, sports schedules, coupons, write notes, etc, etc. With 3 school age kids, a toddler and 1 on the way we have to stay organized so this area in my kitchen/dining serve as the perfect spot.
my secret sister last year got me this board, and John installed these coat hooks under it but i had nothing to put under my bulletin board... until last week! i went to a thrift store and found this pier 1 bench with doors that open up that fit perfectly in the space. it is a perfect space for the kids to put there shoes on in the morning. i want to get some storage baskets for the area that opens up to store swim caps, goggles etc. and maybe one for paper work i need to go through.
Works for me and my fam! for more great tips go here!
