Go Hoosiers!


We have issues.  Storage issues.  We have four closets.  In the entire. house.  There is a small pantry-esque shelving area built into the hallway by our bathroom, but we have no linen closet.  I don't want to use that entire shelving area for towels and sheets, because I feel like it could be so much better utilized.  We bought this Hoosier style cabinet from craigslist last week and have it in our laundry room.  I'm using the top cabinets as a medicine cabinet, and will use the bottom for towels.  I want to put some shelf paper in first.  Normally I'm not a huge fan of shelf paper, but this puppy is straight out of the 1930s, and has some 1930s grit that I have tried to scrub off.  I just feel like I want a layer between our towels and the actual shelf in this beauty.  The finish is white with some blue faux-finish-gone-bad on top.  It's not terrible, and I have much bigger fish to fry at this minute, so it's staying the current color for a while.  I think eventually I'll freshen it up with some crisp white, but for now it's perfect.

I feel you on the lack of closet space. My one requirement for the last TWO houses was a pantry--yet somehow I STILL don't have one. And this house doesn't even have a linen closet either. Not cool.

HOW do you find these things? I never see the good stuff, and when I do, they want too much.

No pantry or coat closet here, it's killing me.
