Do you feel like as soon as the kids start school you’re bombarded with kid clutter? I’m determined to keep it off the kitchen counter and here is my tiny “command station” I created by the garage door.
The white wood organizer we’ve had awhile from our old house and was currently stored in the garage…It was a 20$ Ross find and is actually pretty heavy and nice.
It’s kinda hard to find inexpensive, attractive organizing tools so my solution was to find some plain 10$ document hangers from Office Max and paint them with my fav Krylon Chalkboard spray paint.
I also found a scrap piece of wood and sprayed that as well. We screwed 3 white hooks ($1.99 each from Hobby Lobby) to the board for some hanging storage.
I had some cute black and white scrapbook paper and used Mod Podge to apply on the sides of the document holders.
I feel so much better with an area for the kids to throw there “Stuff” after school!
The hanging space is the perfect height for them 🙂
Yeah for backpacks and lunches not on the floor!
Thanks for stoppin by 🙂
I’m sure most have you read the book “The Help”, if not stop what your doing and read it NOW! It’s so great and so was the movie. I’ve only read a hand full of novels since my babies were born and this was on of them.
I was lucky enough to attend a screening while at Blogher 2011 in San Diego last weekend. My friend Laurie from The Momccupation and I had a wonderful time. Here’s us with our paper fans before the movie.
The casting in the movie was perfect! Emma Stone was an excellent “Skeeter”. In fact all the actors did a wonderful job and did the book justice!
After the movie there was a little cocktail and dessert party. They featured yummy drinks inspired by the movie, along with some mini bite sized peach cobbler, and upsidown pinapple cake bites. I thought this would be the cutest theme for a card club or mom’s group get together.
My favorite drink was the “Minny” pictured below….the vanilla syrup made it fantastic.
