That always meant, getting my dryer from the main bath, plugging it in... and let’s be honest not always having time to put it back where it belongs after I was done, especially when my son was already in that bath and I was running late. ..
So too many days the front hallway looked like this:
And let's be honest... I felt really guilty about allowing this to happen...
Shame on you HUMBER!
I needed storage. I needed something stylish to display my favourite things, and I needed something that would fit that awkward space between the side of the front door and the wall.
I started searching and this is what I found at Olde Good Things
The price tag... $1,050.00
Well... no thank you...
I'm sure that my Hubby could build one for me...
So I asked if it would be doable to build one just like that... or almost like that.

See those cables in the basket? That's my hair dryer!
We just beat the life out of it with a motor bike chain and used the grinder to crate the rough texture.
Then Hubby stained it warm, dark brown - we own a hardwood flooring company, so I had a my pick of colours.
Here is the look at my secret - my storage baskets; those house all my morning necessities! Winners Canada of course!
Did I tell you that we spend about... $35.00 for the wood? Stain and varnish came from supplies we had on hand.
