I am obsessed with an organized home. Unfortunately my husband and kids do not share the same obsession. When we were looking for our home, one of items on my list was a mud room or as we call it in the non-muddy parts of the country, a drop zone. Much to my dismay our home does not have a mud room, drop zone or anything that even resembles one. I’m still struggling with getting my family to quit using our entry way as their drop zone. They walk in , drop everything and I spend my day tripping over and picking up all of their crap.
When I’m not cleaning up their crap, I’m obsessing over drop zones on Pinterest.
This makes my OCD heart happy. A little cubby for everyone. Backpacks, shoes, coats all go in this one spot and I wouldn’t have to scream where are your shoes, where is your backpack or just the general where is your crap. Now if only I could have Better Homes and Gardens come to my house and build an area like this for me.
Ladder and a mini chandelier? As much as I love this, I’m dying to see the rest of the house.
I love the idea of a bench with individual baskets as well. A place to sit and put your shoes on or take them off. I LOVE the plank wall as well.
Rather than a mud room, maybe we could call it a sand zone? Having a place to hang our beach towels after coming home from the beach would be amazing.
So wait a minute, you’re telling me that I could put my drop zone in the garage? If I convince my husband to move all of hobbies to the other side of the garage I might be able to pull this off! I love this!
