Inspiration Strikes!


In the form of RIVITS



I have Phillip Jeffries Raffia wall covering in my bedroom.


 I recently transformed a vintage cabinet/bookcase into My New Shoe Wardrobe and had the back of it covered with some of the leftover raffia paper.


I'm thinking the next step should be to add some rivets.



Are you with me?

A shoe wardrobe! Genius!

I love that wallpaper :)

I don't have many shoes but the few every day pairs I have always seem to be annoying uncorraled.

This "shoe wardrobe" is a brilliant idea! And I do love that you kept the backing the same as the wall to let the shoes sing but the rivets will be the final jewelry to the piece.

Really lovely.

Yes to the rivets!! Awesome idea, that will look fabulous. Can't wait for the reveal. Can you say bling? :)

I absolutely love your raffia wallpaper. I want it in my living room! Also, I have that cabinet in my dining room with burlap on the back of it. I think I need to repurpose it for my bedroom and shoes! Yes, I'm with you! ~Delores

I think if my shoes looked as gorgeous as yours then I'd want them to take center stage too! And you know I love your wall treatment!
