Can't stand it, must do something! Sugarplum to the rescue!

Since our house remodeling has slowed down to a snail's pace and I need to organize two areas desperately, I'm thinking I'm going to just do it and if they get completely changed later than this will count as a practice run. The two areas I need to address are an entryway/drop-zone/family organization center and a bedside table/knitting storage/bookshelf area. Because fixing these two issues would go a long way to a more organized house. But trust me still long way to go before then. So if there is anyone else out there that was remodeling then had to put on hold for awhile so lives without interior walls or stair railings this is for you!

Current State of Kitchen/Dining/Living Room and Entryway:


















Current State of my bedside area (warning the following pictures could be disturbing):


Clearly I need help and a system and a housekeeper but who's going to hire a housekeeper when they don't even have walls?

So here's some preliminary sketches....
For the Entryway:

For my bedroom disaster:
Now I'm not going to get underbed storage at this time but I can at least work on the other area. Probably should start with how to find or make a bookshelf to put on wall next to bed. And then make or find bench for entryway. I already have Mirror with Hooks under it for other wall. Ok and I'll make some collages of how it'd look if it could be done nice and pretty including the walls and new door etc. That'll keep me busy until I have some moolah for this project. But whole idea is project needs to cost $200 or less. Preferably much less. 

Oh and this is the blog spot I saw that made me think surely I can do something in the meantime to organize a couple small areas of the house-->
