Disclosure: A huge thanks to World Market for sponsoring today’s post.
Today I want to show you how we put together a simple and organized Drop Zone area! I desperately needed a space in the entryway of our house to organize and house all of our things. You know, mittens, coats, hats, mail, school papers, etc. One place to keep it all safe and organized and it needed to be simple enough that my little ones could use it too.
I first started out by putting together a little vision board of what I wanted. I knew I wanted a rustic feel, lots of natural woods and fibers. I pulled everything from World Market.
After I had my vision board, I went shopping at World Market. I was able to find everything I needed (and so much more) for my drop zone space. I also pulled some items that I already had around the house and put it all together. The biggest piece and the main piece was the Roland Console Table. It is an absolutely STUNNING table made of solid acacia wood. I was so drawn to the rustic feel, the two large drawers, and the space below to house baskets. It has quickly become my favorite piece of furniture in the house.
I added these gorgeous Lexie V-Weave Baskets on the bottom shelf and created some DIY tags using some chalkboard paint and wooden ornaments. Each one of the boys has their own basket to house their winter accessories and coats. They can simply pull out their basket and throw everything in, easy as that! We added one unlabeled basket for misc. things like extra scarves and hats.
The two big drawers are wonderful because when Wyatt brings papers home from school, they have a place to go. We use the other drawer to store mail that needs to be opened. I can’t tell you how incredibly convenient it is to have a place to put things as soon as we come in the door!
I also picked up a Natural Segovia Mirror to hang above the console for those quick once-overs we all do just before heading out the door. I loved the detail of this mirror and thought it complimented the table so well!
I topped the table with my bottle tree collection (ALL from World Market). Some of these trees I bought a few years ago and are no longer available. But I love to pick up one or two each year to add to the growing collection. I swear, World Market has the cutest winter decor items perfect for holiday decorating. The lovely candle, tray, and deer are also from World Market.
So, what do you think?
Could you use a Drop Zone like this in your house?
