Has the new year sprung the organization bug in you? We all yearn for a fresh start at the beginning of a year, and the best place to start is by decluttering our home. Clutter is perhaps the #1 enemy of any household, and the best resolution is to have a designated spot for every little thing.
My ideal situation would be to have a designated storage space for all items, and they would be put back to where they belong after each use. Again, that's the ideal, and our home is far from that. Our entrance by the garage has long been a drop zone right after we walk through the door. Sometimes clutter would find themselves extending beyond there and onto our coffee table and kitchen countertop.
I can't begin to tell you how the addition of the drawers cabinet at our drop zone has brought me sanity! It has stopped incoming clutter right at the door and into the drawers. Instead of a messy drop zone, it's now a gorgeous little nook. Inside the drawers are notepads and stationery, folders for mail, battery organizers, etc. It's the little things that make life easier, and I know where to find them when they're needed. I'm sure I can organize the drawers better, but at least the mess is now out of sight.
Again, I have to thank the Mr. for whipping up this little guy. As mentioned in this post, finding the right cabinet at the right budget, style and dimensions was almost impossible. I tried not to go too wild with the design of this piece... I do want the Mr. to say "yes" when I have another build! You can check out the design inspirations here.
Okay, enough of my rambling... here's the video of the DIY process of this storage cabinet.
I was so glad we found alternate legs for the cabinet, and they go with the overall style much better than the thin legs.
What do you think is the worst culprit for clutter around the house? How do you deal with clutter coming into the house?
