I had my dad build me this wonderful cabinet. This is the picture I took when I first finished painting it before we started to use it. I wanted it to be a catchall for all the stuff that comes in our front door ;) Very handy, easy to access (no doors to open, no drawers to pull out - easy, peesy).
Here we are a few weeks later and this is how Jaimee uses it. Yes my 17 year old, this is her way of putting them away when I asked her to do so. My 17 year old who leaves a trail of where she has been - stuff out, lights on...yes and this is how she puts her stuff away in the cupboard.
