Our kitchen update brought to light a problem that we are having with where to put backpacks. I had originally installed hooks in the garage to hang them on but that worked for about five seconds. It was too far away from Grand Central Station (aka the kitchen). Then I had them all sitting on a bench in the kitchen…backpacks do not make the best decor enhancement. It’s much more convenient to have the backpacks within reach (but conveniently out of the way) so that I can sign agendas or papers for school for everyone in an organized manner……I’m all about the organizin’.
Solution to problem: We had an empty hall that was not being used just outside the kitchen. Eureka!!
We bought the supplies at the Habitat Home Store and the entire project required less than $30!! I already had the letter hooks just waiting for the right project to use them.
So, without further ado, here are the pics:
Before (boring!!) :
And here’s the after…..ta da!!!
A close-up of the detail:
I hung a picture of each kid above their hook just for fun! If you can’t figure out which letter is yours, surely you can recognize your picture. :)
