Chalkboard Paint Organizing

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 🙂



Love it?
