Hey gals, so today I’ll show you the rest of my entrance way and how I keep it organized. Just for interest sake though let’s go back and take a look at a picture from last year:
And here it is today:
Okay so not that much different but it amuses me to see the basket shuffle in action 🙂 Who doesn’t love a good basket shuffle? It’s fun to try new configurations to see what can be improved on. I’ve been able to add some pretty wicker baskets this time (they became available from my son’s room when we took down his change table). Of course I’d love it if all the baskets in this closet were decorative ones because the doors are left open so often but that will have to be something that comes gradually over time. Believe me, a good wicker basket on sale is worth the wait! Finding them at the thrift store is even more sweet.
Let’s take a peak inside one of those baskets now. This is where I store entryway essentials like chapstick, hairspray for last minute touch-ups, tissues, change jar, etc..
The other wicker basket holds my purse.
The very top long shelf of the closet organizer holds our extra bags like our carry-ons for when we travel, that kind of thing. Things we don’t use too often. The top white basket in the first cubby holds all my hubbie’s ball caps, the next cubby basket is what I call my entrance way junk drawer (can we say catch all!) and the clear container under that holds all our sunglasses.
We try and leave the hanging space on the right free for our guest’s coats when they visit.
Here’s a better view of the entire entryway:
I got the little hat tree by the door through some mail order catalogue ages ago and it makes it so easy for the kids to throw their hats on when they come in the door. No more picking them up off the floor!
So that’s it folks, doors closed.
I hope you enjoyed your peek into my entrance way today. Now I’m off to see if any more of my baskets want to dance with me 🙂
