How a busy family organized their entryway table


Situation: This client has a busy family, with people often running in and out. This table was right by the entryway of the house and everything got dumped on or around it, including mail, books, shoes, etc.

Challenge: It was intended to be for shoes and library books that had to be returned, and the drawers were for keys, wallets, and other small items. It became overwhelmed when people just started throwing everything there when they came in the door.


Solution: We got rid of everything that was not appropriate to live on the entryway table. We made a closed area for books that need to go back to the library, and added a basket on top where the kids can throw their sunglasses and sunscreen. In the drawers are keys and wallets, and one drawer for school supplies like pens and paper so the kids can do their homework. Below the table is a shoe caddy with shoes properly contained.
