Kitchen Parking Pad

We have a TV in the kitchen and I got tired of seeing this mess on the table …1627 And … where’s the pen?

So, I decided to make a place for everything and everything in its place.  I call it the “Parking Pad”.

I drew around each item on a piece of Freezer Paper:1634I took those rough measurements and came up with this layout in EQ7:101128The finished Parking Pad:1628
  And how it looks with everything in its place:
1629What you don’t see is the little notes I can hide away underneath it.  An added benefit – if I’m sitting across from the Parking Pad, I don’t have to get up to grab a control or the phone, I can just pull the Parking Pad towards me.

It’s the little things in life …
