I’m so excited! And I think that you moms out there will understand pretty quickly why.
Have you noticed that things seem to congregate next to your front door? In our house, it’s boots, jackets, gloves, hats, bags, and because of our wood stove – firewood. It’s a constant battle. Me against the disorganized mess. I don’t care how many times I clean my house, this spot always seems to gather everything in the house.
So I tried to organize this small area using blue recycle bins – it worked okay, but certainly wasn’t very attractive. And of course, we still had to dig around each been looking for that other glove. The boots didn’t fit in the bins, so they were still piled up around the door.
With five people in the family and then the farm boys and gals on top of that…well you can imagine.
So my dear hubby measured the space and custom built these (without my asking!!!)
Aren’t they awesome?
Now each kid has his/her own section. Boots have a place and there’s even room for the firewood at the bottom. I’m in love.
Doesn’t take much to make me happy, and this set of shelves is good enough to be my Valentine’s day gift!! Even if a little early. You’re not gonna hear this girl complaining!!
And just for fun..here’s a picture of this morning on the farm
