Launch Pad Reveal

Hello there!  Well, I was suppose to have my Launch Pad reveal done last week, but the week got away from me so here I am.  I'm back and I kicked it into high gear and finished it today. 

Here's what it use to look like?  I still have nightmares about tripping over shoes!




The primary goal for "my" launch pad was to get all of the shoes and coats off the floor and off the stairway railings.  In other words, get organized!

I found the coat rack at Walmart and it was white, but I took care of that and gave it a new coat of Heirloom White spray paint.  Then I knew I wanted to incorporate some pictures of my girls but wasn't sure what else to use.  A couple of weeks ago I found a metal sign at Hobby Lobby and took a picture of it thinking I can create something with these awesome words....."In Our House"  What a perfect place!  How fitting to see these words when you are coming in or going out.




   

Just loved what this said and how it really defines my family.


Just in case the adults kids need another reminder.  



 Blue basket was on clearance at Gordman's for $4.00, not bad



 Simple and organized, exactly what I was hoping for! 


 Blessings to you,

  4. Looks gorgeous, Andrea! So clean, fresh and well-organized! I love the door mat and of course the house prayer sign. We must have similar families, because it would be perfect for mine as well-especially the loud part! Super job!!

  9. This looks great I have to decorate my entryway as well. Just bought a piece to be a coat hanger at Goodwill, but couldn't figure out what to do with the floor since I didn't want o buy an expensive shoe storing furniture piece. I was thinking a rug but your basket idea might just do it! Thanks

  16. You've inspired me to plan my own MUCH needed launch pad. I'm working on it. But, Jeremy says I'm not allowed to call it a "launch pad," because that term annoys him. ;) Ha! Either way, we NEED it!
