Pinterest is a funny thing. I will be honest, I started using pinterest to share my projects which I share on here. To promote my blog. Sorry, there is not a more interesting reason why I “pin” things. I have gotten into it more recently. I realized it was another way for me to become inspired by others. But I am still not very frequent in my usage. The weird thing to me is my number 1 re pinned thing is…
|we have the kids practice their letters and shapes. Well the boys at least,
Nora blurts out the answers. She is such a know it all, and I will deny forever and more that she got it from me
We also have a piece of steel on top that my husband cut down to size using a cut off wheel. He had this steel laying around the garage because he is a hoarder :). No really he keeps everything “just in case we need it” Well we did, and even though this was a great addition to the corner here it was not great for the fact that this is more proof that he is right in saving everything. So win for him, win for the organizing corner, and lose for me because now my husband is right about something. Ok, anyway. There is magnetic paint you can pick up as well. Also I have seen chalkboard paint that is magnetic which you can use too. We measured and cut the steel to run along the top of the chalkboard to allow important papers that the kids have to take in the morning to school, art work, notes, whatever. It is there to see. And it gave me a good excuse to buy these adorable little animal magnets with hooks from e-bay. I mean come on. My kids are only little once, I can only use this cutsie stuff for so long.
|the I thought finished wall organizer, oh the suspense, what did I add?!!!!!|
Once the bench was done all that was needed was my kids clutter. So there my friends is the break down of this backpack/coat organizer. It is a sort of mud room without the room part. So more of the mud part. It is definitely functional and a much better use of the space. But is it that pinterest worthy? Who knows, yes I have a blog, and a Facebook and twitter now. Yay! But I am not the most streamlined and knowledgeable tech person. Or inter web person. I mean I still call it the inter web, come on. But those crazy pinners over at pinterest love their organization. Maybe it inspires them to organize their life. Or maybe it says a lot about my other content and that this is the best of the best. Time to do some self decorating reflection?
