Old houses come with these:
It’s where the phone used to go and I have mixed feelings about it. The location of ours is actually in a spot that won’t exist by the end of the year so I need a temporary solution. For a while I was on a kick about ordering a telephone from the 1940’s era and wiring it into a blue tooth or something ultra techy and complicated like that. Considering I can barely work a twitter account this idea was just not going to work out.
Since we have moved in this spot has just been a catch all of random things that we decide we need to sit down in the middle of the hall….(?) gloves, keys, phones, change, random tools, receipts, JUNK. you know. so I had to give this little ledge a purpose.
Has anyone ever bought something random at oh say….tj maxx and thought it was the best purchase ever until you got home and had no clue what to do with it? Me too. I bought a key holder situation seriously 3 years ago.
Wowza. Anyways, I found it the other night and decided it was getting a home and the phone ledge was becoming the official key spot.
Things are cuter right? I’m not in love but it’s ok for now. I’m considering painting the trim white? but then that’s just sort of a waste of paint…. #conflicted.
Has anyone out there ever repurposed a phone niche? I would love to hear your ideas!
