It had a lot of stuff on it with no real organization. So it just sat until I came up with an idea. Taunting me every time I came home. At a recent flea market, I found this adorable metal tool box. I didn't like the red so I stripped the paint.
It unveiled what I hoped, a cool stainless finish.
Then I headed to JoAnn Fabrics and found some decorative accents to put inside.
Hanging the poster, removing the clutter, and placing some accents along the mantle gave it a cleaner more streamlined look and works better with the living room.
The shoes are still a problem, I have been searching for a nice storage solution for them. If it was me, they would be in our respective closets, but my boyfriend likes having his shoes at the front door. Compromise, compromise. :)
Since I want to share all my tips with you, there is one secret tool that helps every project run smoother, especially when you're staying in and working on a Friday night. And this time it was no different. Thank you magic tool...
