This is command central in our home.
We have a really odd shaped hall which is too narrow for a console table, but there is this little area against the back of the stairs which we use to store the usual suspects of keys, loose change, phones etc.
The shelf we bought years ago from Ikea for our old kitchen (it is designed to sit under your existing wall cupboards as an additional shelf), but it just didn't look right. When we moved here it seemed meant to fit this space. In the little cubbies we keep batteries, the meter box key, work security passes etc....basically 'man drawer' stuff, nothing terribly exciting.
I, aka the Queen of Clean has fed through our mobile phone chargers (they are the wires you see) from a power supply in the understairs cupboard so it looks a bit neater without all the plugs etc.
The print I got from a lovely etsy seller called Caramtaback - see her work here
The tins are souvenirs that I bought back from his recent trip away to Chamonix. They were full of sweets for the kids, but I've now claimed them as the kids have lost interest now they're empty, and besides they don't appreciate the vintage design references! I am still debating what to use them for but enjoying admiring them in their temporary home.
