It has been dusty around our house lately. As we finish various projects on our house (drainage, tile floors in the bathroom, trim, trim and endless trim) I can say that many of these dusty projects have been laborious and pretty dull (like buying a new mattress or putting on a $15k roof), but one project that has been fun and rewarding is our a hall closet turned catch-all landing station. Our 1980’s original house was full of flimsy louvered doors. This closet used to have dark louvered doors that popped off the track when you opened them. Now, this closet is uber functional for our family. We utilized the same IKEA cabinetry we installed in our kitchen to fill in this under utlized closet. The space now has large storage drawers and doors and a central open station that houses our charging station, phone, home/school files, keys, bills, and whatever needs a place to land when we walk in the door. As a result, my kitchen counters are spared the piles. What more could a girl ask for?
We utilized IKEA kitchen cabinetry to transform a standard 36 X 72 hall closet into a modern landing station/storage center. This was a very under-utilized space in our home. Being adjacent to our front door and kitchen, we felt like this was the ideal storage spot for so many “every-day items.”
