Like many families we don't have the elaborate mudroom often drooled over so we make do with the space we do have. For us, the family space happens to be in our garage. This space has to serve many purposes. We have oodles of different activities going on at once which can be a challenge to keep track of and typically results in several schedules stuck to the side of the fridge. We also have shoes, hats, backpacks and so on. I'm determined to combine all these needs into one gorgeous spot.
Gorgeous and functional.
This is my inspiration for the family spot.
I love that it looks like a piece of furniture but also serves as a resting spot for everyone's stuff.
If we had more room, this concept has major drool points going for it. This is ideal for a large family like ours.
This concept is pretty clever for a family with younger children. I like the hooks placed both high and low. Lumberjocks provides everything you need to know to build this yourself.
See the bulletin board on the right? This is what the side of our fridge looks like and I'm not down with that.
I have just the plan to tidy up our schedules I'll share in a future post.
Check back to see what the handy hubby and I come up with.
