William Morris: The Vacuum and the Closet
I don't like my vacuum.
It's floppy and untidy.
You can't leave it out without it sprawling all over everywhere and you can't put it in the coat closet without it sprawling all over the coats. (There is no other closet for it to call home.)
When I painted the coat closet (as part of my two month-long spring cleaning extravaganza) I vowed to do something about the beast, so I googled some combination of "vacuum hose holder" "vacuum hose storage" until I found this:
Finally, I figured out how best to do it and put it up and hung up the hose.
I also rehung my mop and broom on the opposite side and now the coat/cleaning closet won't attack anyone who hangs up a coat (or puts away her backpack.)
Sometimes something useful can create something beautiful.
Linking up to Jules and the gang for the William Morris coffee klatch happening (almost) every Thursday at Pancakes and French Fries.
