top:2px;padding-right:5px;font-family:times;”>As a collector, I find myself on a continual quest to keep my home tidy while using, in a creative or decorative way, all the items I lug home from vacations, antique fairs and flea markets. It’s a constant battle between my inner creative diva and my anal-retentive side that insists everything in my home must have a place and be kept in perfect order.
While visiting a clog factory north of Amsterdam, I found the perfect way to display my tourist clogs while at the same time solving a necessary organizational problem in my home.
Clogs (antique, new, vintage or used) are the perfect accessory for decorating the walls of your work room. Simply store your tools, paint brushes, art supplies or gardening accessories inside the wooden clogs. Attach a wall-hanging hook to the back of a pair (or two or three) of clogs toma+clogs.jpg”>toma+clogs.jpg” border=”0″ />and hang them from a nail in your office or atelier for an inventive and creative home storage solution! This kills the proverbial two birds with one stone by giving you reason to display your holiday souvenir while finding a much needed decorative storage space for utilitarian items.
Hi Ho, Hi Ho, It’s off to work I go….
