As you all know, I live with my boyfriend in a not-so-great apartment. I have been trying slowly but surely to fix up everything so that we are living in a clean, nice, happy space!
We have a window right by the door everyone comes in, and the small space became our shoe spot. It might have been okay if it was a mud room, but it’s not. And of course, it seemed like an okay idea in the begining, but turned into a jumbled mess. Because really…who wants to straighten up the shoes every day.
So I decided to switch it up. I found a storage bench at Target that was too cute. And then found some summery pillows (at Target as well), which seemed to the complete the look. I also bought little decorative bowls from Target to put the dancing flowers in. Okay – as I just typed this out, I realized that the entire makeover was furnished by Target haha. Oh well – I LOVE TARGET!! What can I say!!
Here is the finished look – what do you think?! My goal is to also paint the potted plant (I hate that plant, but my boyfriend loves it). I think I will paint it in bright colors to really pop.
This whole little nook was only $125. The storage bench is on sale for $79.99 this week at Target, the pillows are on sale for $20, and the little bowls were like $5. And this is why I love Target.
