As we get ready for the girls to head back to school we've been doing lots and lots of organization around here. We've been cleaning out closets and baskets and all sorts of storage places to get them ready for the new school year. One of the spaces we worked on making a little more functional for us this past weekend was our entryway. We received this gorgeous Wetherly Cabinet from Birch Lane and I have to say I am THRILLED with it. It is beautifully built and so functional. The top drawer is for Lillie and the bottom for Lola. Right now we have their school supplies in them, but once school starts the plan is to keep all of their papers and things that come home with them each day organized in each of their drawers. Because it's actually a filing cabinet it can hold folders so I will probably use about 1/4 of each drawer with folders to keep their different paperwork organized and easy to find and then will use the other 3/4 as more of a regular drawer to store all the miscellaneous items that they seem to acquire about a week into the school year. =) I get so happy when we find a piece that is so pretty and so practical and helps me stay organized! And one of the best parts about ordering from Birch Lane - they offer FREE shipping on all orders over $49 - even furniture! And their customer service is wonderful. We've added several pieces from them to our new home including the rug in our family room and the pendants in our kitchen!
We also added this adorable retriever bookend (and the other one is in our den - I'll share pictures of that soon) that I love, along with a beautiful burlap covered box to help store things as well. I love the nailhead trim on the box. It comes in a set of two and the other one is in our family room and we are using it to store our remotes.
That's it for today's post. We've got some more fun posts coming this next week including details on our curated sale, a cupcake stand the girls and I built, and another fun storage and organization post with Birch Lane!
