Well, with three kids and and two accessory loving parents, you can never have too much storage and organization FOR all the accessories!
One small problem, our entry way has the teeniest tiniest closet I have ever seen! Like, so small, that it would rival my college apartment closet for “the smallest closet award of all time.”
Can you see the lil’ closet there on the left of the hooks we installed? I know, it is so small, one can barely see it.
We always try to work with what we have though and utilized every square inch of that little closet by taking away the single bar it had mid height and adding two shelf/ bar combinations one above the other for our jackets and such. That closet still spills all over our house and I am one tired mama from bending down to pick up yet another coat or pair of snow pants or what have you!
Which, any one who has experience with either dependent will know, that this means things will end up everywhere and no one but the mother will remember where anything is! ;
Spring is on its way, and I have my fingers crossed that the snow will melt soon and we wont have a need for the heavy Canadian-esque winter jackets and snow pants!
BUT, we will still be left with FIVE accessory loving people under one roof.
This translates into lots of hats and shoes….and scarves….(mama is addicted to the pashmina variety and wears them all summer too). 😉 So, we are in desperate need of more storage in our entry way.
If I thought twice about showing you our over flowing lack of storage situation, and personally always cringed searching through one of those baskets to find a match to a mitten, then something had to change!!
You can see in the refelction of the mirror, our temporary storage situation!
It allows me to really visualize the piece in my space.
I may even load a similar picture of what I would like to add into any given room on to my computer screen, and put my laptop where I picture the piece. Shh, dont share my weird secrets.
I am a total geek like that and it has helped me decide curtains, rugs, and the odd home accessory!
How do you decide on a potential purchase or project makeover for your space? Or are you just a purchase, lug home and see-if-it-works-kind-of-person?
Im going to wait on your suggestions while I go clean up after this latest projects! Cant wait to share the finished project with you soon!
