A couple of weeks ago, I scored a school house light on Joss & Main during the Holly Mathis event. Did you happen to see it? I also picked up the basket tray which I will share in another post. Love.them.both. For far too long, we had a "boob" light hanging in our hallway. Sorry I do not have a before picture, but who wants to see another ugly light anyway?
Here is the new light. We are thrilled with how it looks in the space which of course leads to a couple of more changes. The hallway needs a fresh coat of paint - looking for a clean neutral, maybe white. Also, I would love to change out the coat rack with something more rustic and weathered with some cool Anthro hooks.
Looking from the other direction, you see the world's smallest bathroom with black walls & vintage tile. One of these days, when my hormones are in line with the stars, you might find me with a sledge hammer in hand re-doing that bad boy. But until then, I have an idea for increasing storage that I think will work.
When I saw this image from Kelly McGuill, I knew in a moment that this was what I wanted to do outside our world's smallest bathroom! Which lead me to search for other images along the same lines.
Everyone loves a good IKEA hack. Check out this Hemnes cabinet tricked out with Martha milk paint, Farrow & Ball wall paper, and Lee Valley hardware! A piece like this could be the best of both worlds for hidden storage and things that are nice enough to display in the glass cabinets.
My space is much smaller so I might have to go with this size which still allows for stacks of towels and a few grab go baskets filled with essentials.
I've been keeping an eye out in the vintage stores for just the piece, but they are all either to wide or deep. The space is tricky, but I'm hopeful. If not, there is always IKEA.
By the way, if you missed the Joss & Main sale, you can still find similar lights elsewhere.
