This is a hybrid room that serves many purposes. It is my office/sun-room/mudroom. We live in a smallish home where we try to make the most of each square foot. I wanted to do something with this empty corner in the sun-room. It used to look something like this with a bare wall.
The wall color was BM Stratton Blue. Love the color, just not in this room. And, I wanted a blue ceiling so the walls needed to be neutral for this to work.
So anyway, blank wall = potential space to organize the boy stuff. Boys are like gas molecules. Over time, they completely fill whatever container they are in. Ask me how I know. My goal was to give them a spot for their backpacks & jackets, etc. and hope that they will use it.
If you were around a few weeks ago, I shared inspiration pictures for this project. I was searching for hooks strong enough to hold 20+ pound backpacks (whatever happened to using your locker at school?). Strong hooks are available, but most come with a hefty price tag. I found cast iron hooks for a steal at Hobby Lobby.
I also found this basket at Hobby Lobby and used my 40% off coupon. Score! Now we have a place for the various and sundry items that land on the floor. Any suggestions for what to do when the basket is full ;)?
