ORGANIZATION: The Landing Pad Week #2

Week #2: The Landing Pad

This weeks challenge is the Landing Pad. This is an area that is a constant struggle for us right now. We live in MN. Which means Cold, Snow, Wet. Which means lots of extra stuff: Snow boots, Snow pants, Bulky winter jackets, scarves, mittens, hats. And unfortunately all this extra gear takes up some major real estate.

This is my current "Landing Pad".

Although this is the area I would prefer the backpacks, boots, snow pants & coats be hung....

This is where they usually end up, right at the top of my stairs in my living room. : (

I do plan on changing this VERY SOON. A place that they can keep their backpacks and all the coats, shoes & boats. A place for my purse, keys, etc.

Here is what I am dreaming about:
This one was done by Censational Girl. Check it out HERE.

I love the phrase and use of eclectic letters on the one wall, and the pop of red on the other!

Not sure where this one came from?

Or this one...but don't you just love the rustic feel of the stone wall & floor! It feels so cozy & natural to me!

This one was featured over at IHeart Organizing! Check it out HERE!

So this is what I plan on doing to change it! (Hopefully soon!!)

This is one of Ana White's (Knock Off Wood) plans! If you haven't heard of Ana White or Knock Off Wood you need to go check it out NOW!!!! No seriously! She has hundreds of plans in her catalog that are inspired by all our FAVORITE designer brands such as Pottery Barn, Pottery Barn Kids, Ballard Designs, and many others. If you aren't afraid to try, she gives everyone (even us women) the confidence to try our hands at woodworking & succeed! Here is my first project of many I created with her plans & encouragement that I got from her blog!

I have a ton of projects of hers on my future "To Do List", but this is definitely one on the top of my list.

What do you think? What do your "Dream" Landing pads look like? Maybe you already have the "Landing Pad" of your dreams!
Please share your inspirations!
