extra storage!


Very excited to have some extra storage in our tiny San Francisco apartment via this new chevron bench found here.  I've been struggling to find a place to organize my handbags for the past month...I wanted to place hooks behind our door, but ever which way it didn't seem to work.  Now they are stored neatly in this bench and there is extra room to store picture albums and a few other keepsakes that needed a home. And, there is just enough room for it.  It fits right between the dresser, and we are still able to open the door (very important factor).  It was meant to be... 


Now this little bench needs some pillows. I'd love to add this pillow to the mix, but right now budget is tight with the wedding coming up in no time. I'm lucky I even snuck this guy into the house...

  1. That is such a nice bench! I love it. I had the same problem with figuring out how to store bags-it's so hard to find a way that works. I even went back through your posts on handbag storage for inspiration and ideas! I wound up doing a similar thing, keeping them in a storage basket. I wish mine was as cute as your bench though!

  14. It looks fabulous! Two birds with one stone:) The chevron is a great design, the colors are perfect. And storage in a small apartment is key to a peaceful living (I should know, I live in one, too). My purses just sit in a big raffia bag...
