I've been wanting a hall tree for ages - found one at a GREAT price right before the holidays:
So, I put it on the only wall it fit in the foyer -
where the old dresser was.
But then, the dresser needed to find a new home:
And it found a new home -
where the bookcase had been in the living room.
LOVE the mirror here !
We'd had a mirror there originally - a gorgeous antique one -
but it feel during construction and smashed to bits.
I love being able to put little vignettes on the dresser !
The guys miss the convenience of the buckets for keys and mail .
I moved all that to the back door,
maybe now they'll actually STOP coming in the front -
I moved the coat rack back there too - hint, hint !
Ok, now the book shelf needed a new home.
I moved it to the foyer corner.
I like having the small lamp on there and
I am enjoying a "new" spot to fuss with !
Phew... the wing chair needed a new spot next !
I angled it in the dining room.
It's such a comfy chair and now I can read AND enjoy the fire !
See that metal tin ? I got it for FREE at Home Depot !
I had seen them in the summer and asked if they still had any. The store manager said they only had one left because they'd been discontinued and this one had been "forgotten" when they sent them all back. She said I could just have it and then she wouldn't have to do the paper work to send it back !
I'm using it for wood and even the HUGE chunks fit !
