A few weeks ago, I found a fun package at my back door waiting for my return. Inside, was this cool sports equipment organizational system made by Rawlings....
At the time, I was in the middle of my major summer project; Mission Re-organize the Upstairs (to make way for baby #3!) and started thinking. This organizational system was originally designed to hold sporting equipment in a garage or basement, but we don't own very many bats or softballs and our basement is next on the list of organizing. I didn't want to put this shiny new organizer down in the depths of despair.
So I used it a different way. A much girly-er and pink way....
...on the back of my daughter's bedroom door! I bet Rawlings never imagined their sports organizer to ooze with so much pink. (excuse the undressed Barbies....) I've used the cinch ties to lower it to my daughter's level and to tie on a doll jeep, rather than the intended purpose of attaching a bike helmet or other such equipment. The little pockets at the bottom (that seem like the perfect size for golf balls) hold a good amount of barbie shoes and brushes! Who knew??
Once we get our scary basement to a place where we are organizing our bike helmets and other outdoor toys, I bet this will be relocated and repurposed to it's originally designed assignment. Until then, it is a barbie organizer!
If this organizer looks fun to you and you'd like to try to figure out a way to use it in your home, office, dorm, homeschool space, garage, shed or other spot that needs a little vertical lift, leave a message below and you could win a free one! I will randomly pick a winner with help from my little girlies over the upcoming weekend.
P.S.- Was given a free organizer as a swap for an honest review and opinion.
P.P.S- Ignore the unpainted wall to the left of the door... I am mustering up the energy to remove the wallpaper goop from their room and repaint. I do hope my nesting energies kick sometime this fall to get this major task done before baby arrives.
