Goodwill Goodies...

I recently found these goodies at the Goodwill down the road. They are pieces for our mudroom where I am in the process of updating our Daily System (ie the Pottery Barn Daily System...- that little, bitty first picture above...ha!). Both pieces will be sanded and painted a glossy white. The first piece will be used for mail and the memo board will hold invitations, birth announcements, etc. The last piece will hold two baskets for cell phones, chargers, Ipods, sun glasses, etc...I also plan to add a few pegs across the bottom for hats or extra keys maybe. I already have a dry erase board and calendar. Still trying to figure out what else would work well on the wall and help this family of 5 function to the best of our ability. The mudroom is always a work in progress for me, we have a cubby for each child and baskets for hats and gloves, glasses and umbrellas. Baskets beneath the bench hold shoes, flip-flops and extra socks. The room becomes very cluttered and messy very fast, it is definitely the family's "dumping ground" I want and need this room to work hard and function efficiently. I think I paid a total of $15 for both pieces...not bad. So, whats your Daily System entail? How can I better organize?
