Exciting picture of a blank wall, right? ~ so I painted the shelf ~ ~ painted the bench ~ ~ and put it all together ~
We now have a previously unused space that I think will be very functional for us.
Of course I had to pretty it all up for you! It won't stay this way, but I can enjoy it for a little while until the winter coats and boots have to come out of the closet.
