Family Command Centres for the Drop Zone

I am totally addicted to Pintrest and use it to get tons of ideas for crafts, interiors and children’s activities. Families in the USA seem to have some great ideas for keeping organised which if you are on here regularly know that this is something I am always trying to be better at. One of the things I have come across are ‘Family Command Centres’ which always seem to look stylish and practical (and oh so ever organised). We are fortunate to have quite a big entrance hall but the downside of this is that it can become a real dumping ground. This is called the ‘drop zone’ or ‘landing strip’ in super organised circles (I believe) and I have been coming across some gorgeous  ‘Drop Zone Command Centre’ pins.

One of my best friend’s has just moved house and her husband had made the most amazing shelf unit out of some simple wood and then it had been painted – guess what? – in my beloved chalk paint. I just fell in love with it. I was a very lucky girl and was made my own as a birthday present, to the dimensions I wanted for the exact spot I plan to create our ‘drop zone’ or ‘landing strip’ organisation centre. I am afraid that this will be a bit of a project that will be on the back burner with Christmas coming up but as soon as it is all set up I will be sharing my before and after pictures.

Would love to hear if you have anything similar or great ideas for hallway organisation. If you want to have a look at all the great ideas I have pinned you can check out my Pintrest board here
