winter essential: boot trays

footed boot tray from viva terra

when i saw this boot tray (discovered via ez pudewa), i immediately glanced over at our muddy boots and realized this is one winter essential we’ve been missing out on. though the one above is no longer available, i decided to include it anyways, since you all are a crowd of talented diy-ers. i think you could pretty easily salvage an old metal crate and add some wheels to it to use as a boot tray! but don’t worry, if that’s not your style here are some others to choose from:

before and after: telephone table
 
i have to admit, i was peaking through the windows into the back of the thrift store when i found this beauty.  i snagged her before anyone else even had a chance! i’ve always loved telephone tables, and the idea behind them. can’t you just see someone sitting there, chatting away? i haven’t had a land line in over 8 years!

so this is the after! the mirror, hat, telephone booth, vase, blanket and my orange boots are all thrifted.  i’ve become quite the skilled hunter!

the ‘scarf’ is a 1/4 yard of silk that i ran across at the fabric store. i wrapped it around my neck and called it a day.

and just in case you’re ‘ooh-ing and ahh-ing’ over my beautiful bag, it’s handmade from lightnest- and it’s one of my all time favorite accessories!

i’m using it as an entry way bench, with a place to hang our daily goodies above it, and a place for our boots underneath.

i love all the pops of color that meet me at the entry way. it sets the tone for the house and makes me feel welcome.

i spray painted this on using a stencil- then went over it with a stain that i quickly wiped off.

so there you have it! yet another piece of my home.  here’s to happy hunting!
