Hall Console Transforming

Happy Wednesday to you!

 A while back I found this solid wood French Provincial console for great price as.  It is a great compact size for a piece with closed storage and I've have had it sitting in my unfinished front hall where it fits perfectly in the niche by the closet door. I had planned to remove the cane from the doors and have Todd add a panel in it's place. 

If you recall I was inspired by this almost identical piece at Home Sense for a crazy price of $400.00

so I decided to try it with my Ikea baskets from our open shelving over my washer and dryer. I love the warm grey colour of these  baskets and they are the perfect size  if I was to keep it as open storage like this. I am heading to Ikea for a day trip on tomorrow with my friend Joanne to help her design her dressing room and could pick up 6 more so I'd better decide today what the verdict is.

I am still struggling with the hallway colour, to find just the right shade and won't give this a final coat of paint until I decide what that is but for now I'm liking it white.

It's a grey, raining day and I am happy to be home doing whatever my heart pleases!

Have a great day!
