Creating A Landing Zone…

I talk about creating zones in your home all the time. ┬áThis time I actually got to do it! ­čÖé

Project Review of Organizing Buddy “D”. ­čÖé

“D” needed a place to land when her family walked through the door. ┬áThe biggest concern were her twin’s workout bags, bookbags, and school papers.

“D” also needed a large calendar that she could write down tennis matches, music lessons, and the like.

This is the wall by the garage door (aka where they enter the home) before we installed hooks:


Here is the same wall after we installed hooks. ┬áThe need here was creating hooks at varying heights for the different bags her and her family always grab for. ┬áWe repurposed the shelf as this was sitting in her bedroom not being used. ┬áThe hooks were from Lowe’s Home Improvement.

There was another blank wall that we planned to use for the calendar and wall pockets.

In process – we worked on the design of the wall using brown craft paper.
