First of all, welcome to Lorraine Brierley via here. The shoe box is now about finished. It started life as per this post here. Today it looks like this:
Both sections have a piece of fitted carpet tile in them, to help dry damp shoes.
The gap in the top originally had an box file - minus its lid - which I hoped to cover but haven't yet done so. It may or may not end up in there. I am on the lookout for a shallow container, in blue, to put on the top of it just to finish it off.
This cupboard sits to the left of the dining room curtains which hides the bottom of them a little. That is where it needs to sit and we have gradually gotten used to it being there.
The ceramic and chrome handle (one of 5) cost £2.97 each and came from Homebase:
So all in all, the total cost for this box and its transformation was less than £10, even allowing for the petrol to get to Homebase!
