For YEARS I have wanted a beautifully organized entry... but with 6 kids my efforts to organize look nothing short of a locker room... I need an entire room to stow gear for 8 people. Still... a girl can dream right?
Pretty Organizers Pretty Budget Knock-Off
How about these tall dark and handsomely put together pieces? Ballard Design has them for a majillion dollars... no way in my budget. BUT- if you had a great wide bookcase... thrift store shopping... that you could tip on it's side and paint, and jack it up on a few cheap home depot paintable cabinets then finish the back with craft paper, paint, bead board etc, attach hooks and add baskets... a great look alike. (Major run on sentence)
This is the more petite version... Home Depot has pre-drilled closet organizing panels that would work to duplicate this lady. Add a top and bottom and some hardware you may not even choose a cabinet.. bins? ... not hard to build a frame and NOT the penny Ballard wants... (though if you got the money she's a beauty)
I actually HAVE this one. Can't live without one in a two story house. My kids empty it every night (well, almost every night). I'm too lazy to go upstairs to put things away.
