More of Less

This is more of a case of moving my stuff around and buying something awesome to put it in, but I don't care because I love my new ÃTRAN.


I love that it is red and looks like the letter "C" (letter & number fanatic here).   My name is Monica with a "c" and since I grew up in Germany it was always something that I had to emphasize (it is generally spelled with a "k" here).


After taking the temporary cabinet out of our bathroom I needed a place to store the cough syrup, Tylenol etc.  I wanted to store them someplace else since a bathroom is not the ideal place for medicine storage because of the heat and moisture.  Since we don't need constant access I decided to put the new cabinet in the basement stairway.   This freed up some space in a kitchen drawer as well and I love the way the cabinet looks here.  Can you tell I like it?  The ÃTRAN would be great as a landing strip/catch all by a front door too.

P.S.
This post was made possible with the help of my husband and his drill.  Thanks Honey!

  7. @ Dana - Yes, they are the TRONES shoe cabinets from IKEA. They no longer sell them in white in Germany (only black and red), not sure if this applies to the States. They do have some alternatives though.
