Numbered Cubby System

This is a functional & fairly easy home improvement project on how to customize and accessorize an awkward nook in your house.

Before, there was a wasted space in the hallway next to the kitchen which was, with a little creativity, the perfect spot for the kids backpacks/shoes.  After drawing out the plans, wood transformed this space into this backpack station.  A little board & batten polished off the look:
Black hooks were purchased at Hobby Lobby

Ready to accessorize the space?  Vinyl numbers!  

Don’t they just complete the look?  
We simply designed & cut them from our vinyl cutter, instant customization and an obvious spot for each kiddo from oldest to youngest to store their goods.
