They have another closet a few feet back in the foyer, so if they want to use that one for toys, I can't fault it. I would however have painted the trim and the walls before putting in the shelves. It looks like it still has the original 30 year old paint in there, not the new milky tan or whatever is in the rest of the foyer. 

This. If they're hurting for content (which with some of the recent posts makes me wonder!) why not do this properly? Why wouldn't you paint the walls first?! Ugh so half assed.

The toy rotation/organizing I am giving a thumbs up. I used something similar with my two back in the day. Less IS more when it comes to kiddoes, that's for sure.

 

Toy closet at front entrance? lol

So, when guests come over, they will have to figure out that their coats go under the stairs. Hmmmmm…uh

Meh, I'm pretty sure the only guest they have over are John's family, nonna, and the Bowers, all of whom I'm sure read the blog, so they should catch on.

I just noticed in the repost of the pictures above that when she painted the supports for the original shelf, she got the white paint all over the walls, as if they're planning to paint in there. I'm mean yeah, if it were me it would be 4 years before I got it done, but come on, two people are home all day everyday doing this stuff for a living and they couldn't have dedicated 30 mins. to this? When they painted the rest of the foyer and had the stuff out already?

This reminds me of a post from http://iheartorganizing.blogspot.com/. Except Jen would have painted the inside, covered the shelves in interesting paper, made pretty labels and included a free printable organization list. In short, she would have done a better job. 

 

My kid is only 18 months old, but it seems like a lot to expect Clara to only check one toy our at a time and understand the whole library concept. Are the Petersiks playing toy gestapo, or am I too permissive?

Again, they totally half ass it. I think we all know how to install those shelves. I'm sure there was a way to make it more creative and more attractive.

The door next to the toy closet on the left is the office, and to the right the front door. And in the post the door to the office was wide open. So I'm not sure what you're referring to?

I had a friend whose mom made her take out one toy at a time. My mom made fun of her mom.

Don't people wear coats in Richmond, VA????? 

I guess if a toy closet works for them, just that I'd never do it.  My last house had a front hall WALK-IN closet . . . . I told it my secrets and let it braid my hair.

 

Well, we come in from our garage, so we have coat hanging options there, not by the front door. And friends come in that way too; if they come in the front, they are still more likely to toss a jacket over a chair than bother to hang it up.  Our coat closet doesn't get used for coats either.
