It’s funny how the simplest solutions just knock you on the head sometimes. This home tour provided me two such moments today. First up, I’m swapping the half dead succulents on our dining room table for these artificial IKEA plants soon. Our little secret, OK? Second, I’m finding an old ladder and putting it to use. My shoes are taking up the entire floor of our closet and most mornings I have to crouch under my hanging clothes to even reach the pair I want to wear. Not an effective solution. Time to put those shoes to work and double as display.
