My daughter was out shopping with me while I was looking for pictures for my bedroom, when she had mentioned that she needed a mail holder. They have been in their place for over 6 months and they have been just throwing their stuff on the kitchen table.
Seriously!! Who does that? I consider myself the queen of organization and could never live for so long with nowhere for my mail and keys. I can't say that I like my system now but I was OK with it...until I had to start thinking of an idea for her.
So my mind was working with ways to recreate something that she found but was too small and to expensive.
When I came up with the idea, I had no idea how expensive cupboard doors are. Yikes!!
At least that was the chunk of the money spent. I bought a file organizer and hooks, the rest I had.
I would have chose the larger door, but she didn't want it that big so this is what she got.
First, I put on some chalkboard paint. Everything can use a coat of chalkboard paint!
Then I put in her key hooks, which I snapped off one trying to screw it in.
Next I screwed in the file holder...through the back. Have I mentioned that my projects never go smoothly.
Lastly we used some Velcro and attached a can for pens. My daughter is very happy with just plain stuff, no glitter and sparkle for her. I on the other hand find this incomplete. She thinks its fine and will serve it's purpose.
I would've added a little cork board at least and some fun washi tape on the can. Something more flashy, but it is not mine so I have to be Ok with it.
