DIY Or DI-WHY?: Over The Door Shelving
Given the fact that my last investigative post entitled “Under Shelf Jar Storage: Neat-O Or Veto?” garnered such fervent replies (by the way, majority rules that idea is a big fat stupid), I thought I’d go ahead and poll the audience once again. This time, however, the topic is less under-shelf than it is over. Over the door, that is.
Being that we Westerners are obsessed with amassing stuff, despite spacial constraints not growing in tandem with our possessions, we are also obsessed with any sneaky ways to store said stuff. Squeezing the toothpaste tube of space if you will.
In line with such thinking: over the door shelving.
I find myself, once again, perplexed, unable to decide whether this idea seems a clever endeavor or a blatant waste of time in one’s life.
– You get more storage space.
– There’s no way you’re reaching anything placed on that shelf without the help of a stepladder or some teeter-totteringly high tranny heels. Either way, much effort expended in order to access whatever’s way the hell up there
– Also the time it takes to install a shelf above the door
Please do chime in with your two cents on the matter. Is it storage gluttony? Or Fantastically space-savvy? If the latter is your answer: what items, specifically, do you believe would mesh well with the system in question, and why?
And furthermore, do we think it’s aesthetically pleasing? Or an unnatural act in the world of interior decor?
Just tell me all your hopes and dreams while you’re at it.Image credits: House and Home, Martha Stewart, Martha Stewart, Hus & Hem, Neuvo Estilo via Desire to Inspire, Sabrina Linn via Escapade, Art & Decoration via Desire to Inspire
