An important area that is often overlooked in setting up a first home is the landing strip. An area that controls what comes in and what goes out helps keep your place organized and gets you out the door. This super easy DIY catchall can be completed without taking too much time away from unpacking.
Even Hurricane Irene can't stop the crafty folks at Brooklyn Limestone. I love the simplicity of this key plate and how even a DIY disaster like myself can accomplish it. Some sculpting clay, a house key and some vintage stamp letters are all you need for this project. If you're feeling fancy, add some glaze or paint.
