I'm I the only one who has a million papers on my counter top at the end of the day! Kids' homework, junk mail, magazines etc. I decided I needed one area to put everything. Some kind of station. I found one that I really loved on Pottery Barn's website, but let's get real people, who can afford that! And even if you could who wants to spen $1000 on a organizational station! Well not me! So here is what I came up with. It is in my mud room because my husband did not want it in the kitchen (my choice). So, this is what was here before, which I really love so I just moved it.
There is pins boards, and magnetic boards, and off to the side on the other wall there is a stack bin for homework, mail, etc. I haven't had much time to use it, but I am hoping that it works out!
