So, I cleaned out the space by the door, scrubbed the (ugly) tile ....
|BEFORE: Space Not Well Used|
And installed an inexpensive chrome shelf. And because the wall was in such poor shape, I slapped a coat of sea blue paint that I rejected for Leah's room years ago. And even cut and added some of the floor tile from the old house -- to finish off the corner.
|AFTER: Shelf, Shoes and Re-usable Grocery Bags|
Brief Aside: I accidentally cracked the light switch plate while removing it. Oops! Add that to my Home Depot list.
